Re: Running Script in screen saver Mode or Locked mode
And a clarifying factor. My experience is that you cannot "Minimize" the Remote Desktop Session.
A configuration that I have found to be productive is as follows.
1) Make it clear to whomever necessary in your organizatopm that you require 2 monitors.
2) Remote into the computer that will execute the robot scripts ("mstsc" from the command line)
3) Launch your Robot test script in that remote desktop session, and leave the remote session visible/maximized in monitor #1.
4) Continue work on other tasks in monitor #2 (your local desktop).
5) "Lock" your local machine with your password-protected screen saver as necessary, which will protect the unit under test as well.
NOTE: The unit under test cannot have a timeout-based screen saver. My experience is that the remote session is not recognized as "action" to prevent activation of the screen saver. So you may have to disable the screen saver prior to launching your script. But remember... your local machine's screen saver is going to protect the remote session.
