So I purchased splashtop because of all of the high reviews here and the fact that it was a buck It works well - well mostly. My one issue that I can't seem to find an answer for, which was the reason for not using Teamviewer, is the fact that I did not see a way to blank the local display. I do not want the local machine showing everything I am doing if I can help it.
Teamviewer has the ability, but it is two menus deep after you connect, and it is only for one session. It works, but is annoying.
I've used irdesktop (I think that's the name) it's free, does what I need, but won't support native resolution.
Splashtop seems to have some great features, but does anyone know a way to accomplish this other than turning the monitor off every time I leave the computer? (not going to happen - I won't remember...)
