    Could you amplify you problem?
    Do you mean that, although you have set an off time in the power options, it still does not go off?

    Yes, I mean that...
    Even when I force switch off screen, it switches off on one second and then goes back... Something is powering on it permanently..

    I think you should look in the advanced settings in the power options first. Maybe you have something in there which is not allowing the computer to sleep.Another suspect is the network adapters.
    Open the DEvice manager and right click your network adapter. Then click Properties and go along to the Power management tab. Untick "Allow this device to wake the computer"

    Thanks for trying help - I have performed both actions you suggest, no result... Something is permanently and immediately backs screen on...
