So I've started working on an external monitor connected to the MacBook Pro through an elgato thunderbolt 2 dock. I have made the external monitor my primary monitor, and since it is extremely, I rarely use the Macbook screen, where I usually only have some chats open, or just the wallpaper. The problem is that I don't want to use the macbook in clamshell mode because I need the extra screen area anyway at least a couple of times during a work session and because the macbook needs to be connected to the charger. So my question is, or better
- Is there a way to just have a screensaver on my macbook monitor, which is the secondary screen. Or better
- Is there a way to turn off (not lower the brightness) the screen automatically without putting the mac to sleep?
Third party software is ok.
I have already checked these questions and related answers but they do not help (moreover they are also quite old)
Is it possible to display screensaver on a secondary monitor when using the primary monitor?
Can I change the brightness of a secondary display?
