Screen not response when no monitor on host computer

When I disconnect a monitor (which means unplug moinitor cable from computer) on host computer, the screen from cient computer doesn't response. I clicked/typed from client computer but the screen has no change. After I disconnect and reconnect host computer, I can see the screen was changed. For example, before I unplug a monitor, mouse cursor is on chrome icon. After unplugging, I double clicked a mouse. At that time screen was not changed, but disconnect and reconnect host computer, screen shows chrome is open. Any solutions?

Re: Screen not response when no monitor on host computer

Hi @MikeRhee 

 

With some computers, their video card/drivers become inactive when a monitor is not connected to them. When this happens there is no desktop generated on the host for GoToMyPC to share. One workaround has been to connect just a monitor cable or an adapter plug to the computer as that is sometimes enough to enable trick it that a monitor is connected.
