  2. Hi Jens,

    Great program, just donated, thanks!

    One question: Is "diaplay off" the same as when Windows puts the screen to sleep?

    1. Yes. Display off calls the a windows api and tells it to turn off the display.
      So it will be turned on again as soon as you move the mouse or use the keyboard. Same as if it was turned off by power settings.

      And thanks for the donation :-)

    1. There is not a lot i can do...
      If BC says that it can't fint the monitor it is because the HID device that controls the brightness was not detected by windows. The typical reason for this is that the monitor's usb cable is unplugged (but that is not really relevant with thunderbolt) or that access is blocked by another application (Apple control panel or something like that).

      My best advice right now is to try and turn the monitor completely off (cut the power) and then turn it back on :-(

      Also try to attach something like a usb stick to the usb ports in the monitor to see if the internal usb hub is working as expected....

  4. Thank you so much! The brightness part work great! I have a 27" Cinema Display.

    Unfortunally the display Off function don't work for me, I dont know Why. My display is almost aways on. When I press the turn off command, the display turns off for a few seconds and then it is just turned on again without moving the mouse or keyboard. I use windows 8, don't know if this is why it is not working.

    I configured the power settings in control pannel to turn off video with 15 min of inactivity, even this dont turn off the display, the screen just go black, but the mouse cursor still shows on top of the black screen, so the display is not turned off.

    Do you think it may be related to my graphic card? I have the lastest drivers installed on my radeon 7770.

    1. Im not sure what causes the display off problem.
      But all my app does in regard to display off is tell windows to put the display into power saving mode imideatly.
      It is excatly the same as the screen off timer in power saving settings.

      It can be your graphics card or any number of other things that cause the problem.

      Sorry im not much help. :-(

  6. Just donated! This saved me so much hassle of having to replace my cinema display (that was stuck on about 20% backlight). You are a digital hero! Thank you!

  7. Do you have an email address or other way of which I can submit HID information? I have an older 17" Apple Cinema Display, and it does not appear to be working with the current version of the software.
    Thanks

  8. I finally sold my 27" Apple Cinema Display and I would like to say thank you for this great application you have developed. I've been using it everyday ever since.

    Wish you the best.

  9. Hey thanks for the controller!
    Using it with 2x Apple cinema Displays works great. Any chance of getting an update for windows 10 ? it keeps saying that net.framework 4.5 is not installed even if it is included in w10 by default.
