A group of chess players checked into a hotel and stood in the lobby talking about their tournament victories. Suddenly the manager came out and asked them to disperse. “But why?” They asked. “Because I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
yeah that's true. I wasn't considering the collection of ref types there. Now I can see why microsoft cleared their arrays. I didn't put 2 and 2 together and think about garbage collection. meh. thanks.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
This question, Googled, returns 108 hits which ALL have nothing to do with what is implicit to it, as a question. So, yeah, I guess "No" is really the most useful thing anyone would expect to gain by typing the question, or any question for that matter, into that pile of ... nonsense.
This is a good example of the hidden esoteric teaching (gematria) behind Google's search engine.
I am not allowed to say too much, but, note that 108 is a sacred number in Buddhism, and Hinduism, Sikh religion, and Jainism ... it also happens to be the hyperfactorial of 3 : sum of two squared and three cubed. Each interior angle of a pentagon is 108.

This barrage of displays for instance: https://www.codeproject.com/script/Content/ImageUploads/f4ac59dc-aa36-4cd2-b0a7-6f6553e1adeb-small.png[^]
If those images of an oil platform were, as I anticipate someone will tell me, wallpaper on a desktop, not there and only the color BLACK was being used as the background ... and no icons were present on that desktop, I would expect both monitors to power down and present a powerless, non-LCD heating, void ... that is, technically, a no-signal (though the monitor "knows" not to begin displaying a message in "pong" mode (text scurrying about an invisible set of Escher staircases on the screen) because the monitors are still connected to the graphics card which in turn is still powered by the computer to which the other two monitors are attached too)).
But if I move my cursor (mouse) through the monitors (the array of system metric or desktop dimension currently "powered") the signal would turn to power up and that cursor/pointer/whatever would be backlit by the BLACK desktop color chosen.
Alright, perhaps the idiosyncratic mouse mentioned was a poor choice of a computer object to use in a description of the environment seen in the image to which I pointed.
The desktop wallpaper. Let us assume that that's what I'm seeing on that backplane there on the wall (poor choice of words, I know ... cheapness at the expense of expedience), if I were to go into "Personalize" and switch from "Background/Picture" to "Background/Solid Color/Black" I would perhaps gain no-picture and both of those displays would show BLACK as the desktop color. Yes?
Perhaps not, right? Because I see on the table where the keyboard is placed that perhaps the desktop color is lime green and there is currently an open window displaying Codeproject on a web browser and there's no oil platform anywhere behind any of the stuff displayed there. Assume now then that that lime green monitor is being designated as the MAIN DISPLAY. But perhaps not again; both of those monitors, attached to some video cards, might be primary and lime green because they are being STRETCHED (MOSAIC'D/whatever) under the control of that video card. Whatever the case might be, I'd expect whatever background displayed on the MAIN DISPLAY to always be powered up in the normal running of the OS.
Even if there was no mouse cursor being used on the MAIN DISPLAY?
That is not a possibility is it? No icons; a possibility.
Anyway ... to put a period where a period is due in this thread, if on one of many extraneous monitors attached to one or more video cards on one computer, there were no icons, no toolbars, no open windows, etc ... I would expect that the blackness (yes I refer directly to the background "Solid Color" chosen in the "Personalize" dialog) would usurp any tendency for that monitor to actively display any signs of being powered-on ... and appear completely signalless and dark.
if I were to go into "Personalize" and switch from "Background/Picture" to "Background/Solid Color/Black" I would perhaps gain no-picture and both of those displays would show BLACK as the desktop color. Yes?
Yes; which makes it harder to see if the system is standby, and should not even be an option.

You mean to say "play dead".
It's a missed opportunity; a screensaver could display a lot of useful information. As for playing dead, I would not buy it, simple as that. If it is on, it should display what the signal tells it to. Once screensaver-functionality comes to the display, it will not be used to power it off, but to display Google-ads.
