When a Macbook screen is locked and it sleeps as a consequence, any active RDP sessions from the Microsoft Remote Desktop client app (from the Apple App Store) are disconnected. When you log back in to the Macbook, the RDP session will display the following error message:
"Your session was disconnected because your Mac went to sleep. Do you want to reconnect to the remote PC?"
This occurs despite the Macbook's settings being configured to ensure that network connections remain up when the Macbook sleeps, so the issue is with the Microsoft Remote Desktop Client app - it is choosing to close RDP sessions when it detects that the Macbook has gone to sleep.
REQUEST: Please can we have a setting in the app to allow active RDP sessions to remain up even when a Macbook sleeps?
Many thanks, Lee
