Display Port Monitor Turn on Trigger?

Avatar from

Is it possible for DF to detect a display port monitor turning on as a trigger? When I turn off one of my DP monitors the windows on it go away, so it would be nice if I could capture the event of it turning back on to position those windows properly.

There isn't a way to trigger on "monitor powered on," but what you can do is save your monitor configuration with it on as a Monitor Profile. Then you can create a Trigger rule that uses the "Monitor Profile Changed" event, and specifies the Monitor Profile as a match condition. That way when the monitor powers on, DisplayFusion should detect the Monitor Profile and fire the trigger.

Hope that helps!
