This is a feature request, which seems quite easy to implement:
I have the following situation: 2 Desktops, 2 Monitors. one Desktop A connected to both Monitors one Desktop B connected to only one Monitor
While Synergy works great and does its job i still have to change input source on one Monitor to get the Video Input from Desktop B.
The idea is now that an option in synergy allows to send the leaving-computer a monitor-off command, so the Monitor would switch its input source itself, because only one input source is left. Once you return to the computer where the monitor was turned off the mouse/keyboard would awake the Monitor automatically.
So the feature would be an "Switch Monitor off on Computer losing input-focus" which would turn off the local video output (just like Hotkeyz-Tools Monitor-Off Command).
Thankx for listening,
PS: This is my first "question" and i am required to enter a tag, however i am not allowed to create new tags, so i have to select an available tag. There is no suitable tag for my post, so the whole tagging is rendered useless.

Looks like the solution is on the link you mentioned; have a hotkey mapped to a command which turns the monitor on and off. Though this sort of thing isn't really what Synergy was designed for.
