    Remote Desktop leaves a logon screen on exit

    I like my single user XP setup in my car - it doesn't ask me to log in when I boot the computer or resume from hibernate.

    However, after running a remote desktop connection, the login prompt reappears. Does anyone know a way around this? For instance, when remote desktop is closed, pop control back to the local machine without requiring re-login?

    Or are there any alternate remote desktop programs I should consider using? What software do you suggest for remote connections?

    this is the way remote desktop works in windows. It dosent allow more than one user on the desktop at a time. So it forces you to log out.
    You could use VNC, havent used it in a while but it think it dosent log you out when you connect to the other machine.

    use beyond remote. It's bascially software that lets you spy on your kids or somthing, but it works great. I use it on my htpc to remotly set up tv recording schedules.

    Real VNC and Ultra VNC both work great. I think Ultra VNC is built on Real VNC. This is what I use, and I love it man. File transfers and everything.
