If my notebook's screen turns off after inactivity, there is no way to turn it on, except to replug vga cable. But then rainmeter crashes.

Hi,

first of all: Great Plugin!

It works great for me except that i can only control one monitor.

I have 3 similar 27" Dell Monitors with 2 connected by DVI and one by Display Port. All monitors have DDC/CI enabled. (The one which works is connected by DVI)

The problem seems to be, that the plugin can't find the other monitors.

If I set the Monitor index to 1 the log lists only Monitor 1 and if I set the index to 2 or 3 I get a warning in log saying "Backlight.dll: Fail to control monitor, no more tries"

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Chris

Sorry, me personally can't help at this point, because I'm using one single monitor. Sorry...
