    I have this setup and it seems to work as long as the computer is not locked (i.e. windows key + L) or the screen saver is off. But, if either of these 2 items are affective it does not work. Is there a way to unlock a computer with it (that is password protected) or bring it out of sleep mode? If not it seems its use is rather limited.

    Thanks for any help,
    Danny

    I don't believe you can access a 'locked' computer (so you can't have screen saver password to resume)... but you most certainly can have a screen saver on.
    When I log onto Phonemypc, I see my screen saver, I tap the screen (on Droid) and it will wake up my PC... then I just go about business.

    my PC itself (user account) is password protected... but I do not have to enter the password to wake from the screen saver.

    You cannot unlock a PC yet, but we're working feverishly on it and it should be out soon now.

    Like Martin said, screen savers aren't a problem. But, to use them, you must turn off the "Require a password on resume" check-box, as that causes the PC to become locked when the screen saver shuts off.
