[KB1195] Can you trigger a display wake up or stand by? (FAQ)

Short Description

The integrator can define a period of inactivity (i.e. no ClickShare Button is connected to the Base Unit), after which the ClickShare Base Unit will mute the video output to the display or projector. Depending on the configuration of the display or projector, this can trigger a standby mode in the display or projector. As soon as a ClickShare Button is plugged into the laptop and connecting to the Base Unit, the Base Unit restores the video output signal to the display or projector, showing a welcome message or introduction screen. Another way to control the standby behavior of the ClickShare Base Unit is by pressing the standby button at the front of the unit.
