Screensaver not activating.

7 posts in this topic

I hope this isn't repeated, but I can't see to find an answer.   Using the latest version of Synergy (1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2). Build date: 3-16-2017.

Setup is : Host is PC, client is a MacBook Pro

Setting: Host: Configure Interactively
Setting: Client: Autoconfig checked with IP address (ethernet) in the menu box.

Problems:

  1. When PC screensaver activates -- the Mac's doesn't start. It is set to start after 10 minutes.  The next day (this is a work computer) - the Mac's screen saver is not activated, but the PC's is. Once I login on the PC - then the screensaver engages.   
  2. Sometimes I lose keyboard and mouse control on the PC - but they are active on the MAC.  - I am unable to resort control. The only way is to do hard reboot of the PC.

Any advise is appreciated.

Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

Hi.. 

PC / SERVER:  
Window 7, 64 bit.
Ethernet connection and Wi-Fi  (both are always enabled)
Synergy (1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2). Build date: 3-16-2017

MAC / CLIENT:
MacBook Pro, Sierra v 10.12.5
WIFI connection to the network
Synergy (1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2). Build date: 3-16-2017

I'm attaching screen shots.  I've also noticed that copy and paste from the client back to the server doesn't work with the mouse.  I can only right click and copy - then use keyboard to paste.  Also file copy and paste has never worked.

Hi Paul -- Tried that.. didn't work.  The mac's screen saver never gets activated.  It's set to 10 minute delay.

What else can I try?  

Also file drop and drag has never worked for me.
