I've set my other RDP problem aside for the time being as I'm now seeing a different issue ...
If I set the desktop to be put into sleep mode via my RDP session (over WAN), I cannot get it wake back up via magic packet (over WAN).
the only way to wake it back up is manually.
before this, I had tried putting the desktop in sleep mode manually, then woke it up again via magic packet (over WAN), this was tested 2-3 times.
Its just when I set the desktop to sleep via RDP.
Any ideas why or how to remedy this?
(and yes I have googled, but nothing worked yet)
