Secondary PCs screens not automatically turning off

4 posts in this topic

In Windows 10 I have my monitors turning off after 15 minutes of inactivity.  With Synergy 1 this worked fine...with Synergy 2 only my main PC's monitors now turn off automatically. 

Suggestions?

We'll be reintroducing the screensaver sync feature mid next year. Thanks for your patience.

Hey Nick

Was looking at the forums for a post about "screen turn off time" before making my own.
I have my laptop next to my desktop (I've gone from BETA 4 to 5 to RC1) and the screen won't turn off after 5min (set in the energy management settings).

Is this a known issue?
I've been keeping an eye at the task manager and its not like synergy is taking any CPU (like the 50% CPU bug in version 1.x way back in time), once in a blue moon it will pop-up and take 0,1 or 0,2% CPU is this the reason why the screen won't turn off?

Is there a workaround or should we just wait for 2.1?

I guess ill make a bat-script that kills the synergy processes because when I now leave my laptop it won't lock (security measures) and won't turn my screen off. (battery drain)

Thanks!

Yeah it’s a known issue. We’ll be fixing this in 2.2, mid next year.
