Feature Request: Monitorless Server #478
It would be great to have the option to setup a server as "monitorless". Meaning that a server should handle mouse and keyboard on multiple clients without itself participating in the monitor layout.
A user having multiple desktop systems wants to use a single mouse & keyboard for the entire setup. There is no main system which is always on.
Instead a lightweight server (e.g. a Raspberry pi) which is always on can handle the keyboard and mouse input on the systems. Therefore a single keyboard and mouse can be used with the systems no matter which one is currently on or off. It must be ensured that only the low power device is on.
I just commented on a similar issue (#447) and I'll reproduce the same comment here as it might be of use to you:
