I searched the forums proir to making this thread. I can connect no problem to the remote desktop, what I am trying to do it have the remote computer automatically unlock when I close the connection. My mom doesn't like having to enter the password and gets angry. :S I dont really want to install any third-party software to do this, if its not possible I guess I'll have to convince them to use the password. Thanks in advance. EDIT: Forgot to mention, its XP Pro (obviously) with SP1 and I wont be installing SP2.
