I Startes Unsinn Screen Sharing to connect remotely to my Mac at work. This works, but, as I am sharing the office with a co worker, it is annoying that the screen turns on when connecting. In addition, it also has privacy and confidentiality implications.
My question: is there a way to remotely connect to an iMac without the monitor switching on and essentially also being logged in locally?
Screens by Edovia has a feature called Curtain Mode.

Screens Curtain Mode

lol, well I wasn’t trying to steer you wrong.
Be sure though to set your Sharing to Remote
Management, as it says in the documentation,
