    OK I couldn't figure out where to post this so I hope someone will find it with some help.

    I have managed to download the TeamViewer SW on two of my laptops. One stays on my desk all the time and I use it like a desk top. I'm able to use the TeamViewer to control the desktop PC (Laptop) with my other laptop, but I have to manually except the "invitation". This won't work if I'm at a remote site.

    So my question is what do I have to do to make it so my desk top PC will accept the invitation automatically when I'm not at home?

    It seemed that this setting worked well for awhile. However, after some weeks I keeping getting the connection failure to connect popup. This message says my PC that Im trying to control remotely. The PC is still on, but it does put itself to sleep after a long time. XP OS

    I recently received an email from TeamViewer that said there was a "wakeup-on LAN" option. I don't see it on my latest SW version; or do I need to purchase a license to get it? The website for this SW is non disscript.

    Why is your blue iris PC going to sleep?

    I'm not using the BI PC yet I'm just testing team viewer using 3 devices on my home LAN. Using a Dell laptop on my desk, an ASUS laptop and my Apple I6 .smart phone. They all are wireless, and they all work fine as long as the devises are logged on and the TV programs are active. I thought I had the problem solved with the "allow remote control" selection for each but not the case?

    All PC with Microsoft OSs have a default sleep mode and I have never been successful at trying to turn that off. I can set screen savers ok but not the sleep mode. Any way, it is my understanding that TV is able to Wake up any PC in my LAN?
