I've got two computers that were working great with the built in screen sharing in Mountain Lion. Recently, I took the monitor off my Mac mini, and now when I access it via screen sharing it just shows a black screen with the cursor. I've got a server running on it that I can access just fine, and I can ssh in it works great. If I restart the Mac mini it works for a while, but when coming back from sleep the screen just stays black.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
