Windows Embedded Standard - Turns Monitor off? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My new WES image turns my monitor off after several minutes? (I used the Gaming/Kiosk template with a custom shell)

     In the registry the Screen Saver is off and also the Power Schemes is set to presentation (2) Monitor always on!

     I have even copied the registry key from my XP PC with all of the power saving features turned off, but the screen still turns off after several minutes.

     I have a dual boot with XP and my Windows Embedded image. With my XP boot the monitor never turns off, but with WES it always turns off.

    I have now spent three days on this silly small issue and getting frustrated!

     Any ideas?

    or, here I copied it

    Add Power Configuration Tools at your image.
    Change your configuration with the powercfg.exe command. type /? for help.
    or follow these:

    powercfg /setactive PRESENTATION
    powercfg /change PRESENTATION /monitor-timeout-dc 0
    powercfg /change PRESENTATION /monitor-timeout-ac 0

    you can additionally change for the disk and hibernate options.

    SAVE this setting. Usually command shell registry is not saved when you exit/turn off.

    I hope this is usefull
