Monitors turn off 60 seconds


Well-Known Member
I have a dual monitor system with W-7 Pro
Power settings are to turn off the display after one hour and has been doing that for a year.

A couple of days ago, System just started to turn off the displays after about 60 seconds.
They come right back with a mouse shake or keyboard tap.

Set for 1 hour in normal and Advanced settings.

Any help?

I know that it may sound an obvious answer, but have you checked your screen saver settings. A blank screen saver set to one minute will look and behave pretty much like you are describing.

Thanks for making me check.

Wasn't that. For some reason, problem disappeared.
Had forgotten about it 'till this post.

Gotta love those problems that fix them self automagically. Thanks for the followup and sorry about the delay in responding to your post.

I think you made some mistake in screen saver setting ,change it with a beautiful one and see the difference.

Always nice when problems, just of their own volition, just decide to run off into the sunset; nice it did, though
