ScreenSaver XenDesktop 7.1

When you use XenDesktop 7 or 7.1 the screensaver doesn’t work when you have a VDI session. This is a known issue. To fix this set the following Key

HKLM\Software\Citrix\Graphics SetDisplayRequiredMode REG_DWORD = 0

reg add “HKLM\Software\Citrix\Graphics” /v SetDisplayRequiredMode /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f

  • Screen savers and the power-save option are disabled in XenDesktop sessions. Edit the registry and create the following DWORD value:
    HKLM\Software\Citrix\Graphics\SetDisplayRequiredMode = 0

    This change does not prevent the remote machine screen saver or power save mode from coming on. If the power save mode comes on, the remote session is not updated until the user provides input (mouse/keyboard), but the screen will not be blanked. [#380550]
