If I join with 'screen' to existing sessions, I can get a list of the sessions with C-a " keystroke and switch between them, however I can't find a way to safely leave/detach and keep all the processes running; if I press C-a \ it seems that it kills the processes.


Why do you use \ at all? The detach character is d.

  • Right, C-A d just detaches and exits. Thanks! – Mark Dec 9 '14 at 21:25
