Second monitor display during time out


I've found that the second monitor will dim but not display my defined theme (i.e., muscles). I'd prefer if I couldn't see the windows on my second display during a time out.

Here are my settings and here's what a two-monitor time out looks like.

I suppose what I'm hoping for is a "Both" option in the "On screen" dropdown.

Setting the opacity to 100% should completely hide the screen contents; I'm not sure why it wouldn't.

If you have the external display as the active menubar, does the laptop screen completely obscure the content?

I used to have the theme display on both screens, but I didn't like how that looked, and some people were confused by having the controls on both screens. I may revisit this in the future, though.
