  1. New install Windows 10 or 11 - Screensaver and power settings to turn monitor off do not work


    Hang in there with me on this one -I have a PC that was Windows 10, screensaver and power settings working fine. I upgraded that PC to the Windows 11 preview and screen saver and power settings for turning off monitor work fine.Now I have a second PC, rather than upgrade I decided to scratch the drive and install Windows 10 fresh build 21H2 when all the updates are done. Nothing but USB mouse and keyboard plugged in. No other software installed this is a fresh USB install. no DVD drive in PC.One of the key differences is on the first PC I ran the MBRtoGPT to setup secure boot and use TPM2

    Monitor turns off after 10min (not screensaver or power settings)

    Hello just few days ago monitor (Asus PG278Q) started turning off after 10 min while watching media or idle.

    Checked screensaver: set to 'none'
    Checked power settings: max performance, set to never shut down or sleep.

    What else can turn off monitor except screensaver of power settings?

    PC settings:
    - i7-4790k
    - asus PG278Q
    - win 10 x64 Home
    - 16GB PC2400
    - SLi GTX 980 Ti
    - 512GB M.2 for OS
    - 4GB sata6 for media

    Anything would be helpful, already loosing all hope.
    Btw tried settings screensaver to some other and choosing 60 min but it still turns off after 10 min or earlier if set so it's not screensaver.

    Screensaver slideshow does not display correctly whith dual monitors set to "extend desktop"

    Hi Tom,

    Since you've already checked the Screen Saver Settings, kindly answer the following question for clarification:

    • Have you tried turning off the second monitor while assigning the screensaver slideshow to the primary monitor?
    • Have you tried disabling and re-enabling the screensaver?

    We also suggest that you make the screensaver slideshow to appear first at the primary monitor properly before troubleshooting with the second monitor.

    Kindly get back to us for clarification.

    Screensaver not working except in games

    I just installed a clean Windows 10 on the new machine a built. For some reason, none of the listed screensavers work EXCEPT when I'm in a game and idle.

    If I'm not in a game, no screensaver will ever start. I've tried playing with the power settings including cmd powercfg, etc.
