Description

Hey again,

as the title suggests I was wondering if it is possible to let the Player disable video output after playback (so that the monitor goes into standby mode).

I'd love to have this feature if possible.

Reason: When I am watching something in the evening from my bed, I'm usually too lazy to get up and turn off the screen. Since I want to keep the pc running, shutting down after playback is not an option in this scenario.
I have "turn off monitor after: 30 minutes" enabled in the Windows power saving options, however this countdown starts only after playback and the remaining image on the screen until then usually is too bright.

Thanks again!

Are the settings in the "Play", "After Playback" menu insufficient?

+1 for that feature.

It can be done with SC_MONITORPOWER
