  1. Display Power & sleep question

    I recently got a new computer running win-10 and a new Dell monitor. Went through the setup steps one of which was display settings. I put 20 min in for power setting and never in sleep. I've used these setting for years in other machines but now the monitor will not power down after 20 min! Tried everything I know... Any ideas?
