I have GoToMyPc version 10.0 installed in a windows 10 laptop and its power settings has been defined to keep the computer on even when the lid is closed. The problem is that whenever I try to connect to it with the lid closed, the host is unresponsive. However if I left the lid opened, it works fine.
Any suggestion to solve this?
It sounds like the PC is still hibernating somehow when the lid closes. See if you can confirm this setting:
@vanesah If your PC still turns off the display when you shut the lid (no light coming from the monitor), GoToMyPC will still shut down itself, as it needs an active display to resend screen shots from.
Yes, the display is off when I close the lid, I checked the power configs again but I think they're correct. I have:
Display -> Turn off display after: Never
Sleep -> Sleep after: Never
Is there any other config I should consider? I know that if I leave the lid open it works, but it's a requirement (of physical space) to keep the lid closed 😞
THanks for your help.
@vanesah What's happening there is, GoToMyPC and other applications are effectively being 'frozen' in place when you shut the laptop lid, possibly due to a hibernation setting there. Unless you have an externa monitor setup to this laptop, and the power still goes off temporarily, then GoToMyPC will not be available during these periods.
