I will try those things next, but additionally, is there a convenient way (menu) to put the device into Standby Mode upon demand?

I just tried shutting down the Mac without touching the Cintiq, which indeed put it into Standy Mode (the light was breathing) and it did thereby register the device and screen layouts automatically upon startup.

How long will the device stay in Standby for? Indefinitely?

Can it be put into Standby mode while receiving a signal? That is, is there a way to power down the display without turning the device off (button) and while the attached computer is still on? Since turning the device off reconfigures the screen layout of remaining monitors the same as if it were disconnected. Or would there be no difference in how a connected computer interprets either a sleeping or absent Cintiq Pro 24?

An important part of this troubleshooting is first clarifying what all the expected behaviors are.

And it would be so much superior of a product if I thought I could power down the screen with the device still otherwise on, to have no other effect than to save energy and illumination yet while retaining the multi-screen mapping, and that this was a deliberate feature. Certainly it would bring it in line with the functions of almost any monitor device if this was an optional behavior.

Unfortunately not.

That is correct. If you don't press the power button it will remain on standby, like most displays on the market.

No, this is not possible. You can set the OS to not use the display but once the tablet enters standby mode, pen input will not work either.

Agreed. Please let me know if you still have questions about how it works.

I will forward this feedback to the product development team. I don't think this should be an out of the box feature to keep the device usage simple. Perhaps it could be an advanced option for more experienced users.
