comment How to keep selected text highlighted when focus changes in Microsoft Word/Excel
Thanks for your concern Dave, but I already added a link to that question, plus as already stated, I am also very interested in a solution for MS Word while the referenced question refers only to older versions of Excel.

comment How to mirror multiple sources to a single destination?
I absolutely agree, but since my own intention is solely to make a backup of my drives, this solution fits. It also has the advantage that if I lose a drive, I can easily find out which files (and directories) were affected.

Ok I finally got a power tester. Powered-on uses about 30 watts. After using Wizmo or Dekisoft to power the screen off, it only uses 1 watt!

[A] No effect. [B] I just noticed I have NVControlPanel\RegisteredServers2 (with Dummy value) but also NVControlPanel2\RegisteredServers which has various UUIDs (DisplayPanelServer, WorkstationServer, and some others) and under that a Key Overrides with some more UUIDs as keys. I could post my reg files for NVIDIA and Windows DISPLAY? [C] That sounds painful and annoying when new drivers come out. [D] I found Dekisoft Monitor Off Utility which turns the screens off, but I haven't tested power usage if the screens are off or just in some sleep mode.

Oops! By "Screen Resolution" I meant the standard Windows monitor configuration area if you right-click on the desktop. I didn't find anything under "RegisteredServers" except a Dummy value. I changed the 'NvCplTvLocaleAutoDetect' to 0 and rebooted, but my control panel still lacks any extra configuration items. Any other ideas? :)

Neither that registry key, nor any other of the (sub)keys/values in {VESA_Monitor_ID} section change when I power the monitor on/off. I could post a screenshot but I don't see any useful information in there. In "Screen Resolution" section my primary monitor disappears and the secondary becomes the new primary.

I think the option to work with custom EDID information is only available on Quadro cards.

Good try, it's already set to primary in Windows and I have no such BIOS option because I'm not using on-board graphics. To quote from the article, "If you are using the onboard integrated graphics card of the M58p and M58, and want to use two external monitors. You should set the primary display to displayport and secondary display to vga in both the windows and bios environment."

Added graphics card to my post. Also no, no connectors, just a rather expensive DP cable from Oehlbach (which according to Amazon reviewers was necessary to support this high resolution).
