Both machines are windows 10. Primary is an Asus laptop intel i5/8gen. Secondary is a Dell Optiplex 7010 with similar processor.
I'm not sure but maybe changing the lock function to be independent will allow the secondary to sleep if I don't use it for a while?
I cannot claim my issue is huge, and in fairness, MP works really well - shockingly well for the price, really. It would be nice to be able to put them to sleep as needed as I describe, though, so if you can figure it out and let me know I'll appreciate it.
Thanks very much. Using this forum isn't nearly horrible as I thought it was going to be, when I thought it represented abdication of tech support to customers (as I have seen elsewhere).
