Using a projector with a timer switch?
I am trying to set up an art installation which will involve a projector projecting a video piece in the middle of the night when unattended. I was planning on connecting it up to a laptop and somehow using a timer switch. I realized though that the projector may go to sleep or may not work using this timer switch option. I would set the video projection up with blank space on the video to correspond with timer so that for example if I wanted the projector to come on in five hours time I would put five hours of empty space at the start of the video meaning that whenever the projector comes on it is timed with where the video is at that point and the video will play. I know there are holes all over this so any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks, Rachael
