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.

would usurp any tendency for that monitor to actively display any signs of being powered-on ... and appear completely signalless and dark.
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.
