Flat out: in Windows Server 2008 R2 Ent and under the guise of a couple of PCIe video cards of various obsolete datelines of various manufacture and mixed monitor types/screen size/manufacture ... black was NOT displayed. Meaning all monitors with the exception of the MAIN DISPLAY (where the taskbar resides), powered down. That is, again, no signal, no heat, no nothing, todt, dead, fertig.
That is a sin.

Windows will, when the SS is running, power down a monitor.

Which is wrong, ofc Smile | :)

Nothing to display (which is nonsense) does not equal no signal, and no signal does not equate to not being active. One of my monitors helpfully displays "no signal" warnings when that happens.
