    Monitor powers on after computer turns it off


    Trying to find how to keep monitor off after I lock the PC. What I do:

    1. Monitor powers off after 1 minute when PC is locked
    2. In few seconds computer plays sound like it detects new hardware, monitors wakes up and shows "No Cable Connected".
    3. Then monitor turns off.
    4. Then again sound and "No Cable Connected"
    5. Etc.

    :)

  3. Computer turns itself back on after shut down

    Hi Thiaunaj,

    It could be due to incorrect settings or missing/corrupt drivers or missing updates.

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Go to, Settings. Then System. Then click on Power and Sleep.
    • Click on Additional power settings. Then "Choose what the power button does".
    • Click on Change Settings. Finally unclick "Turn on fast start up".
    • Save Settings.
    Also, try to run the Power Troubleshooter.

    Power troubleshooter will automatically fix some common issues with Power Plans. Run the Power troubleshooter to adjust your computer's power settings. The Power troubleshooter checks things like your computer's timeout settings,
    which determine how long the computer waits before turning off the monitor display or entering sleep mode. Adjusting these settings can help you conserve power and extend your computer's battery life.

    • Press Windows Logo Key+X then click on Search option.
    • Type Troubleshooting.
    • Select Troubleshooting and click on
      System and Security.
    • Click on Power and follow the onscreen steps.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Monitor powers on after computer turns it off

    Computer hangs (crashes) after automatically turning off monitors

    Just changed it. Will update you. Thanks!

    BTW, when it is set to just have the screensaver come on but not turn off the monitors, I have no problems at all.

    Ugh, I had 2 good days with no crashes with the monitors powering down, but 2 crashes in the last 12 hrs or so.....
