Turn off monitors/blank screens for a given host?
#1
If I have a host called "dev" is there a way to turn off its monitors or 'CQC-blank' its screens from an IV running on a different host?

The question is in general, but this particular box has two monitors - does that change the calculus at all?

Thanks for any advice!

No, there's no way to do that. You can set the auto-blanker on the clients running the IV so that they'll auto-blank.

In the OnLoad of the main template, you can set up the action to set the auto-blanker. It's a command on the Intf.Viewer target. You set the inaction time in millseconds I think it is. If the user doesn't interact in that time, the blank and blanker function will be invoked to power down the screen.

Is there any way to get it to blank all monitors on a multi-monitor setup?

I think that the default blanking and monitor power off stuff that we use for the Blank and Blanker just affects the main monitor.

You could try this utility:

I use motion sensors to display pictures on my touch screen. When there is no motion, the panel powers off.
