Screensaver doesn't become active on a Citrix Virtual Desktop Agent

Version 1


    Consider the following scenario:
    • A Citrix XenDesktop 7.x environment with Client OS Virtual Desktop Agents is used.
    • RES ONE Workspace is used.
    • Within RES ONE Workspace a screensaver is configured to take start when the Virtual Desktop Agent is locked.
    In this scenario when the Virtual Desktop Agents is locked, the screensaver does not become active.



    The Citrix process GfxMgr.exe prevents the screensaver becoming active .



    To make sure the screensaver becomes active when the Virtual Desktop Agent is locked, execute the following process on the agent:

    powercfg -requestsoverride PROCESS GfxMgr.exe DISPLAY


    This process is not available on a Server OS.
