I've experienced this very frequently that after some time if the connection is idle or the client screen is locked, client is reported dead by the server. The client still shows as connected. When I restart the client everything returns back to normal.
Synergy 1.4.7 Server on Microsoft Windows 7 x86 (WOW64) Synergy 1.4.7 Client on Microsoft Windows XP x86
Can you please help to resolve this?
