27" MSI Optix MAG27CQ power off detection
« on: 11-May-18, 09:54:12 »

Hello,

Before I buy this monitor (27" MSI Optix MAG27CQ) I need to know if it supports disabling of "Hot Plug Detection".
This will be my third monitor in my multi-monitor setup and I need to know that I can use DP cable and yet be to turn monitor off (or sleep) without undesired "un-plug" detection in my Windows (basically thanks to "Hot Plug Detection" OS will stop detecting it and move all its content (windows and icons) to the other monitors even when the cable is still connected).

This issue is heavily discussed for example here:
https://superuser.com/questions/630555/turning-displayport-monitor-off-disables-monitor-completely
https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/641n54/display_port_monitor_power_off_and_pc_stops/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/4pn4gx/how_to_disable_displayport_hot_plug_detecttmm/

Since Microsoft and nVidia and AMD are all refusing to provide a solution, this has to be supported by monitor manufacturer.

Thank you.

It is auto detected for Hot Plug and then you can be choose what port is displaying.

What I'm asking is when I turn off the monitor using the power button, will it get disconnected from my Windows (as if the cable was unplugged) and move all content to my other screens?

Some monitors can disable this behavior in OSD menu and some just won't do that at all. But most of the new monitors will behave like this. That's why I'm asking here, maybe someone that owns it can test it.
