Multiple monitor management
Well I for one love the new options for dealing with more than one monitor in Win7. XP kinda pretended no one had more than one, but 7 seems to be quite aware of the idea.
Anyway, what I would like to know is this:
Can the power options be set differently for each monitor?
I'm only running 2, and one of them has some kinda problem "waking up". I'd like to keep letting my main screen keep shutting off when idle, but I'd like to keep the other one powered on. Otherwise I have to go digging in the nVidia panel and disable/re-enable the monitor so it finally comes back- power button on the thing doesn't work (well, the button DOES work, as in it does shut the monitor on/off, but it doesn't get the picture restored- only disabling and reenabling in the nVidia options gets this acheived).
Can this be done with only the built-in controls in 7?
If not, I've had UltraMon for years, does it work with 7 yet?
Thanks in advance.
It's an annoying problem with the screen, it must be dying (was a cheapo $100 17" 1280*1024 one.... served me well before HD widescreens became the norm).
I do plan on getting a 2nd, bigger (actually working)HD display at some point, but until then I'd like to keep this one more useful than annoying.
