    I'm having a problem with dual monitors. Whenever I watch some video I have to
    shut down my second monitor, is there a way to force it to sleep during video playback with MP-HC and wake up afterwards? It's gotten kinda annoying, because I have to do some work with large spreadsheets lately and switching off the monior 15 times a day just to watch some short video fullscreen drives me nuts, especially if I forget to switch it back on and start to look for all lost windows on the 1st screen. BTW my gpu is nvidia 760 and I use win8.1.

    Didn't explain, why do you have to shut down your second monitor?

    The screen is pretty bright and it's really distracting when I watch something for more than couple minutes, I like it much better when it's off so I'd like to know if there's a way to sleep it automatically.
