    Power setting turns display off as set but then it turns right back on


    Windows 10 version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.1110) I have a Dell Inspiron 7700 All-in-One computer. I have the power setting set to turn off display in 10 minutes and the put the computer to sleep set to never. After 10 minutes of no activity the screen turns off but then turns right back on. I've unplugged my USB hub with no USB devices connected except my Logitech trackball and I'm not touching it or bumping the desk to cause the display to turn on. The only other USB device I have plugged in is my Microsoft keyboard. Sadly, I have no way to turn the monitor off separately so it ends up staying on all the time. I worry it will damage my monitor over time. Any ideas on how to fix this problem. Thanks!

    :)

    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.

    Power & sleep settings

    It seems that there is something else that triggers this problem. We've tried to replicate this in our end and we received a different result. The display stayed off until the computer was manually wake up

    For us to isolate this further, we suggest that you restore the power plan settings to default. Follow these steps:

    • In the Cortana seach, type in Power Options and click it from the search results.
    • In the right pane of your preferred plan, click Change plan settings.
    • Click Restore default settings for this plan.

    Once it's restored, please have your screen or the display turned off the same time as the screensaver would start. Say, set both to 5 minutes.

    In case the issue persists, then please go ahead and perform a clean boot. Starting Windows with minimal set of drivers and startup programs will help us determine what conflict is causing the problem. See

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows
    for the steps.

    Let us know the result.

    Regards.
