My preferred method is TeamViewer, which is free for personal use. There are integrated solutions within Windows and Ubuntu anymore, not sure how to correctly set them up though. Never tried. And with TeamViewer, you can access whatever computers are attached to your account from online, too. No need to install the client on the computer you're viewing from.

Be careful with that program. The last time I used it, it assumed control of power management on my machine.

Power management as in the Power Options in Windows? I haven't had that issue on any of the 15+ machines that I've installed it on (for friends and family).

Yep, it took control over the Windows 8 power schemes and wouldn't let me change them until I'd uninstalled it. It's odd since I use it at work frequently myself on XP and Windows 7 and I'd never seen that problem before.

Very odd. I don't doubt that's possible since TeamViewer tries to keep computers awake while transferring files and using the VPN service. I'm on Windows 8.1 at the moment and will be checking often if my power options change. Thanks for the heads up!

What's bad is that in the case of my PC it did the exact opposite. I left the machine on for a large download and it was frequently placing the system into standby mode. Fortunately my girlfriend was nearby at the time so she could just power it back on for me.
