Hi,

You can create a custom power plan within the control panel on Win7 for connection to the Projector

Tree is correct. The option is not automated though, and would need to be set everytime you use it as a projector computer, unless it's always on there.

To break it down into steps:

Go to control panel, then Power Options. On the left click "create a power plan" and give it a name like Projector. From there, set the plan to have the monitor and etc to Always on. You should be good at this point,

If you want to easily switch between your new plan and another, you should have a power icon near the clock on the taskbar which should allow you to quickly switch profiles.
