Auto-turn off monitor not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I know this question has been asked before, but I still didn't find an answer. I'm using Windows Web Server 2008, I have installed all available updates, but I still have a problem with the auto turn off monitor function. Basically, I set the screen saver at 4 minutes, and turn off monitor at min. After 4 min, the screen saver starts, as it should, but after 2 min, the desktop shows (screen saver closes) and it stays that way (the monitor won't turn off/enter standby). Any help will be very much appreciated. Bye.

  • Did you install the appropriate graphics card driver?

    There are various freeware tools available to force you monitor to blank - do these work?  (do a search for nircmd.exe, it has an option to blank the monitor manually nircmd monitor off)  If not
