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...

I think the plugin has a problem with either recent versions of rainmeter or recent versions of windows. Upon waking up from sleep, the skin stops working and needs to be reloaded by switching layouts or something. This never happened to me before in some years of using this plugin but just kinda started spontaneously a month or two ago.
