Windows 10: Activate Screensaver when disconnecting from RDP session

    Activate Screensaver when disconnecting from RDP session


    Hello,

    I have my desktop at home setup so that I can use Windows Remote Desktop to remote into it and do work. When I'm done, I usually just close the RDP session window, leaving my computer at home logged in, but locked (because I have other server processes running). If I lock my desktop locally (with Windows key + L) I have my screensavers setup to engage automatically. I was wondering if there was a way to do something similar when I disconnect from an RDP session. Currently, it just shows the Windows 10 lock screen and then the monitors shutdown at some point after. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Kevinjon

    Depending, how you disconnect, you can create a shortcut, like:

    tsdiscon
    start "" "C:\Windows\System32\Mystify.scr" /s

    Cheers bru! I've found my PC is sitting idle, monitor on with no screensaver hours after an RDP session before. I haven't tested it much since, Microsoft might've patched the glitch, but this should at least 'potentially' help stop some screen burn :P
