Lol. Really lol.
Did you unplug them to make sure it doesn't happen again?
If you unplug them, remote access might not work !
I have that issue here with one PC that must be plugged into a monitor, or else it doesn't work remotely.. ( I've even tried one of those dummy monitor plugs, but no, it doesn't like it ! )
And a laptop, that if the screen isn't opened, don't display certain windows.. ( I think it has to do with it having onchip graphics, and a plug in graphics card, some windows are rendered with one and not the other.
FX [ Wonders what an "X session" is.. ]
I'm using VNC for remote access, the only one I found that I could get to work the most reliably, or at all !
I do have another on my todo list to check sometime.. ( Recommended here. )
Todo list is about 5 years long..
Current top item, delete old data on old phone before selling it !
But I can't factory reset it, or it will break it..
It took me days to copy the data off it, by hand, since none of the phone software works well enough to do that, and even if it did, it stores it in a non-standard format that makes getting the information out as plain text, something that would require me to dig deeper into its non-standard format..
Quicker to just copy the data off by hand, and type it into the new phone..
I'm reminded every time in the past when I've tried one of those, application that moves your data between phones, it always corrupts it !
@electrineer I am now going into the office 2-3 days a week (we are trying to make it so that each person has their own room for them). At the end of each day I actually unplug the mouse and store it away. I cannot unplug the keyboard tho, because then somehow the remote access doesn't work anymore. Didn't have time/interest to investigate why tho.
Tonnoman4061yThe nature of the rant made me fear it from the start 🤣
