Vista Remote Desktop and monitor power saving
For some reason when you use remote desktop to access a Vista machine, it seems to turn off the power saving features. Normally my monitor shuts off after 10 minutes, but if I remote desktop into the machine, the monitor never seems to turn off, until I log in locally. Once I log back out, the monitor shuts off after the normal time. I've seen a few posts about this, but no one seems to have an answer or solution. Please chime in if someone knows how to fix this.
