How to keep application running when computer is locked?

Question by bebek_dunkdenk: How to keep application running when computer is locked?
Hi,

I’m running Mdaemon on my server, but for after a while, the application won’t download any message anymore as it will stop running when I got the win server locked. Even when it continue to run, the application won’t pull any email from host server. Is there any configuration where I can set this application to keep downloading the messages when the windows locked?

Locking the server shouldn’t have any affect on your applications that are running. Is it a true server? If not, perhaps there is a power management setting enabled that is turning off your disks or other devices after an extended period of inactivity?

If you’re using Windows, any sort of daemon should be running as a System Service, not as an interactive user.
