I have a projector for my TV, so for all of my video activities, I start off by having the lights turn off and the screen come down. When I press the Off button on my Harmony 890, I'd like for the screen to go up and the lights to turn back on. Is there a way to do this?

HH is correct, here is how to get to it.
Troubleshoot Activity (i.e. watch dvd) -> No, I want to change settings -> Next until you get to 'yes, but I want to add more control' -> SAVE -> Next until you get to 'review actions' -> under 'when you leave this activity' at bottom, add light controller, home appliance and the appropriate setting.

Thanks to both of you for the advice. One concern I have before I add these sequences is that I'm afraid that if I decide to switch from, say, watching a DVD to playing a game, that the screen and lights will come up and then go back down again. I would like the lights and screen to stay down/off until I press the big Power Off button. Is that what this will do?

FYI, when I switch from Play Xbox360 to Watch DVD or Play PS3, The lights do come on briefly and then go back down and the screen begins to rise but then goes back down. Can't change that unless you set up activities just for the screen and lights as HH suggested.

Thanks again for the advice. I tried it, and as you said it would, the screen went up about halfway and went back down again. I decided to put it back to the way it was and just create a new activity called "Shut Down" that will turn up the lights and raise the screen. After I power everything else off, I can just run that activity. Too bad there isn't an easy way to automate...
