  1. Displays Immediately Turn Back On After Idling


    My PC will be sitting for 30 minutes I have it set to turn off displays after 30 minutes and once the displays turn off, they immediately come back on. I know something is registering me as active, as I have Discord and it gives me the idle status after being idle or "afk" for about 10-20 minutes, but when my displays turn back on immediately after going idle, it changes my status to online. I'll be in bed, shopping for groceries, etc, and when I return to my PC afterHOURS of not being active, my displays will be on and my apps will have me registered as online rather than idle. I would set my PC to go to sleep after 1-2 hours of inactivity, but I have some personal projects/work that require my PC to be on, or rather running.

    :)

    Display does not turn off when pc is idle

    Just did all the suggestions. Did not work. Display does not turn off.

    This issue was from the beginning when I downloaded Win 10. I had Win 8.1 and the display always turned off as I set it.

    My pc is HP Pavilion Touchsmart 23 all-in-one. According to "checking for updated drivers on display and monitors", I always get the response that the drivers currently installed are the correct ones.
