Sooo I found out that Steam has streaming option I can use to play some games at work. Nice feature, exists since 2016 I believe I found about 5 years later :)

Display I have in work has FullHd resolution and I would like to play it in this res. Unfortunately default Windows screen off Res is 1024 or 1280, not 1920...
To prevent lowering the res I need to keep my screen on, which is not too power efficient (and power cost about half more since the beginning of the year)...
I thought that HDMI Dummy may be solution. And it is, partially. When I start my PC with it connected than it won't boot at all. It works when I connect dummy AFTER turning on the PC, but than I have to leave it asleep (to save power and money), but dunno a way to put it to sleep after Im done playing...

So. Now I'm wondering if I could force screen off resolution to FullHD?

PS. Another way is to be able to put PC to sleep, but it would have to be done using Steam, as it's the only connection between my PC and work one (except eWelink card and Alexa, but it can only turn it on (or awake) and off, so no puting it to sleep...).
