Vista, and even Server 2008 losing backgrounds

    My home computer runs Vista Ultimate, and is somewhat powerful.
    As part of my school work, I have Server 2008 set up, which I usually access through remote desktop (terminal services), which is within a LAN.

    Somehow both of them keep losing their backgrounds, and turn black. My Vista machine usually loses the background when I play a game, and then come back to the desktop. I have more than enough RAM, 4GB for Age of Mythology. It doesn't seem to matter whether I use one of the included DreamScene things, or a plain coloured background.

    As for the server, just a simple light blue colour, and the next time I come on it is black again. I think it must happen when I go away for the day, because disconnecting and then reconnecting to the session doesn't cause any problems.

    At least any ideas behind why this keeps happening?
