Vps with putty closing, or freezing

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a dedicated server and have been having trouble with putty. I have been using the server to try and host the game called minecraft. Hosting the server is not a problem however. What is the problem is being able to exit putty without stopping the server. I looked this up, and it sayed to create a screen. I did that after installing screen. I then created a screen, ran the server, then tried to disconnect using the ctr-a-d. However only two things happen when i push the buttons. The majority of the time the window just closes, along with my server stopping. The other thing that happens is putty just stops. I cant type in anything, but I am still notified when I try to close putty. Can anyone help me?

Alright the whole point was that I couldnt get it to detach at all, and trying to would make it freeze or just close it. However my problem came from a faulty tutorial (actually i never did find one that answered my question)but luckily I did find the solution. I thought that after creating a new screen, I would automatically be attached to it. The when I typed screen -r and saw that I was attached I figured that it was correct. However, I then detached from the screen using screen -d (name of the screen), then reattached using -r. Works like a charm now.
