Hey guys, i have 3-4 people remote desktoping into a server 2003 standard server. a problem we seem to be having quite often is that you open up remote desktop, put in ip, and it connects but u never see any icons, startbar, or even a login screen for that matter. So it just takes you to a blue screen with the ip bar up at the top. Mouse is still moveable tho.

Also, Sometimes it will login perfectly then after i minimize or have it in the background or inactive for over 5-10 minutes it will turn all blue. any ideas?

connection seems good. I should probably add that we have it setup that upon connecting to remote desktop it automatically logs them into our program we use. they have no actualy access to the server (icons, start menu, so on) but as stated above sometimes the program doesnt load and it just goes to a blue screen.
