If I have already logged in to the VM at the remote computer and then access remotely everything is fine.  If I restart the VM remotely and attempt to login, the mouse and keyboard do not appear to function.  The answer seems obvious - do not restart the VM remotely.  The only time this becomes necessary is when I need to reboot the remote machine remotely - thus suspending the VM.


Local Machine

Mac OSX 10.7.5


Remote Machine

Mac OSX 10.6.8 running VMWare Pro 5.0.2

VM Windows 7 Professional


Any help would be appreciated.




Remote Desktop, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
