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.
