Local Keyboard Input Suppressed with Remote Session active.

Recommended Posts

I've noticed lately that when I have a remote session live on a machine, my local keyboard input is not being accepted in items such as Notepad, Chrome, Outlook, etc. This seems fairly system wide and I'm not always able to replicate the problem. This is likely something to do with the keyboard forwarding method, but I can't isolate this myself. Also, this does occur on several different machines - not one workstation in particular. As soon as I close the remote session, the keyboard functions normally in my local Windows 10 environments.

Good luck with this one - it seems very transient.

This has happened to me a number of times as well. It seems to happen if you switch back to your desktop while the remote desktop is opening. To regain use of the keyboard, I just click in the remote desktop session, type something, and then go back to my desktop.

      Hi,
      I think it misses the ability to monitor bandwidth on servers and users computers. It would be nice to have a history of several weeks and the services used.

      Hello and good day. Is there any way for Pulseway to notify me when the monitored system reaches a specific % threshold of RAM or CPU usage?

      Hello!

      Recently I've been experimenting a bit using scripts that contain variables that the user should enter.
      For example, a very simple one to shutdown a computer after X-amount of time: (example use-case:  I download large files during the night, so it doesn't count towards my ISP data-usage)

      @echo off
      set /p time=Enter time in seconds:
      shutdown /s /t %time%
      timeout /t 3 /NOBREAK
      exit

      however, upon executing said script, the app doesn't request for the variable to be filled out. (I guess it's not made for such uses)
      Obviously, i can manually enter the command using CMD, but i don't want to be typing the command every time i need it. (you can call me lazy :p)

      Any ideas how to do this correctly?

      Is there a way to kick off an automated task based on a notification or alert.  For Example, if we get a notification of a disk getting full, I would want the automation to run: 
      <Open a ticket>--> <add predetermined note>--> <add 15 minutes>--><run task to clean drive>--><send notification that task has completed>--><close ticket>
      Is this possible now, or should this be a feature request?
      Thank you,
