I am using RealVNC at work to connect to a remote PC. When not working on that PC directly, I prefer to keep the monitor off. However when the monitor is off, RealVNC Server reduces to reduce the desktop resolution from 1920x1080 of the monitor to the maximum of 1600x1200. It happens in real time: When connected, I can see the resolution numbers changing in Display > Screen Resolution while switching the remote PC monitor on and off. I wonder if it is possible to control it. I want to keep the high resolution even with the remote monitor switched off.
I've tried reading through the options of both VNC Server and Viewer, but cannot find anything related. The
-geometry option mentioned in another thread does not exist in my configuration. I am running Windows 7 on both local and remote systems, with RealVNC version 5.0.3.
