[SOLVED] Remote desktop causing mouse or keyboard not to work?

Has anyone ran into this?

I will remote into my work PC from my home PC and everything works great. But, the next day or next time I go to use my work PC my mouse or keyboard are unresponsive. I actually have to restart my PC to get them to start working again. Its the same wither I use wireless or corded mice.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Take a look at this hotfix:

From above link:

The issue occurs because the remote desktop ActiveX object does not deactivate the focus of the remote desktop session when the focus is lost. Because the focus is still activated, the remote desktop ActiveX object cannot set the focus of the remote desktop session again when you change the focus back to the session.
