[KB1195] Can you use ClickShare to wake up a display or projector or put one on standby? (FAQ)

Short Description

Yes. In the configuration options available via the web interface of the ClickShare Base Unit you can adjust the ClickShare standby and screensaver settings. When configuring the ClickShare Base Unit on the web interface, you can define a period of inactivity in the display settings, after which the unit will mute the video output to the display or projector and if configured correctly this can put the display or projector into standby mode. 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.
