I'll buy it if it can detect the radar gun, WHILE ITS IN STAND BY MODE. BEFORE THE TRIGGER IS PULLED. Because what happens if there's no car ahead of you for the next 10 miles and the cop has the radar gun set to instant on while he's playing on his computer, then he happens to look up and see me hammering all he had to do is hit the switch. Lol!!

yeah, well, just off the top if my head, I think you are going to have a problem finding a radar detector that can detect “nothing”. That is nothing as in no single thing, as in the absence of anything. Even in the upcoming world of AI, that is going to be a reach.

To your question, what will happen in the scenario you created is that you will get a traffic ticket.

What's happens is, if you don't know better than to not speed if you're the only vehicle on the road, you get pulled over.

Right off the bat, you have figured out that a radar detector is not a police car detector. You are off to a good start.

An answer is to combine other countermeasures & techniques along with your radar detector. Use the Waze app. If you can, follow a speeding car ahead of you, a "rabbit" or "bear bait," and let them risk the ticket.
CB radio is dead compared to what it used to be, but it can still be useful if you know how to use it.

Welcome!
