Viewer disconnects after a short idle period
Tue Apr 29 07:15:01 2003
Thanks Nicholas and William for your replies... The answer is No, I do not run any screen savers on any of my systems, and I double
checked to see if the monitor ever gets turned off automatically in a power saving mode, and again the answer is No...
One weird thing, the client window does not actually close right away after a minute of idleness, but if I attempt to move the mouse
within it, after it has been idle for a minute, it will immediately close and disconnect. If I leave the client window open and do
not touch it or do anything to it, then it will remain open for about 10 minutes or so, then automatically close and disconnect...
