In Windows, Remote desktop is a Program which makes possible to access desktop of another computer running Windows with your computer over a network or remotely.
For example, if you have two computers, one at home and other at Office, you can access one with other by remote desktop application.
When you install Windows OS, by default ‘Remote Desktop’ is disabled. In order to connect a computer over remote desktop you must enable remote desktop in that computer.

If you have set the computer to ‘Hibernation’ or ‘Sleep’ when not using for a specific period of time, then you will see the above message. That means if you are communicating over this computer with remote desktop and it goes to sleeping mode, then you would not be able to access it again until somebody wakes it up. To change it you need to change the settings in ‘Power Option’.http://goo.gl/FoQ4C
