When configuring the ClickShare Base Unit on the web interface, you can define a period of inactivity in the display settings (i.e. when no ClickShare Button is actively connected to the Base Unit), after which the 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. If this does not work, make sure you have the latest firmware installed on your Base Unit.

The ClickShare Base Unit can also be put into standby mode by pressing the standby button at the front of the Base Unit.
