I've been watching this error for a few years and so far teamviewer has not fixed this issue. It seems like the teamviewer service running on the remote pc is in a bad state. I haven't tried it but it may be possible to restart the teamviewer service. Last night one pc I was working on got this issue so I came up with an alternative. Using a python script running on the remote pc, it checks a webserver for a certain file. If the file exists, reboot the local pc. It isn't elegant but it works for my purpose.

Finally have a solution. Went back to the TV manual for WOL. Start TV. In the TV window, go to Extras - Options - General tab - Wake on Lan. How to do this is on page 12 of the Wake On Lan manual. From there I went to my section (fixed IP) for port forwarding and followed those directions - on page 15 of the manual. I have a fixed IP, so entered that in the WOL portion of the address field in Team Viewer. Then you need to do some settings in your router. My new one is Comcast; the first bunch of settings is under "Advanced - Static Routing. If you don't know the info they ask for, you can get it for your particular machine this way: Type command prompt in the search box. Type ipconfig after the cursor. It will pull up your subnet mask, gateway, name, and Gateway IP. Enter them in the boxes given in the Static Routing section. Then you need to make sure to open the appropriate TCP/UDP ports. The information about setting up port forwarding is on page 15 of the TV WOL manual. Go step by step and it will work.
