Windows 7: Disconnect from remote desktop session via Live Mesh without locking?

Windows 8 Pro (32-bit)
Disconnect from remote desktop session via Live Mesh without locking?

Whenever I use Live Mesh, it locks the computerand quits Windows Media Center. Is there anyway of setting it so that I can log out with WMC running and the computer unlocked?

I believe Windows Live mesh creates an additional session when logging in remotely. I don't think it uses the same session as the console.

If another remote desktop program is an option then I would suggest logmein as it uses the console session.

Live Mesh Remote Access
Simple question: If I want to use Live Mesh to connect to a friend's computer when he's having issues, I have to give him my LiveID login and password to do it? Not really inclined to give away my login credentials to anyone.
