    Remote Desktop - Remote Computer is Sleeping

    Got a question that I could answer if I was at the office to try it... Trying to connect remotely to an HP desktop at work.

    If the HP is in sleep mode, I can't remote into it. Here's the scenario: Couldn't remote into the HP... Called a co-worker he noticed is was in power saving mode & moved the mouse, it woke up. Then I was able to remote in.

    Would "Wake on Lan" in BIOS allow me to wake up the computer through a remote desktop login request? Are there other settings?

    EDIT: Both PC's on XP Pro 32

  3. Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer

    We suggest that you disable any security program on your computer and check if it resolves the issue.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as
    soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Then follow the steps below to ensure remote desktop is enabled:

    • Click Start.
    • Click on File Explorer.
    • Right-click This PC.
    • Select Properties.
    • Click Remote settings in the upper left hand corner.
    • Ensure the option Allow remote connection to this computer and
      Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer is selected.
    • Click Apply and OK.
    • Reboot the PC for the changes to take effect.

    Let us know the result.
