Multiple monitors, one stays live?

Hey

I have 2 monitors. I like to put the 40" one in screen save, black screen, but want the little 22" to stay live, as I run an AIDA64 sensor panel on it.

I do not put the computer to sleep, just try to kill the 40" LIGHT overnight!

I set the program to blank on the 40", no screen saver on the 2nd monitor. They both go black at 9 minutes!

Also, can I set a mouse move to wake them up? Might have missed it!

Is the 40" your primary monitor? If so you can download the "Dim all monitors except Primary" scripted function (Settings > Functions > Download Scripted) and run that to dim the monitor. Running it a second time would un-dim it

Ah ok, try the attached Scripted Function out:
  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Functions tab, click the "Add Scripted" button
  • Give it a name and a hotkey
  • Paste in the code from the attached text file
  • Optionally, select it, click "Toggle TitleBar Button" (to add it to the caption bar of every application)
  • Click Apply and test it out

Note that to un-dim, you can just run the same function a second time.

Thanks!

Do you have a script similar to this that will make the primary monitor go completely blank instead of only dim?

Hello,

In that script, if you change line 33 from "90m" to "100m", it should turn 100% black. It won't cause the monitor backlight itself to turn off though.

Hope that helps!
