  1. Preventing Win10 From Moving Programs to Different Screen After Sleep?


    It's a productivity killer when Windows 10 re-positions some of my programs after every time it wakes up from sleep or when my monitors shut off after 20mins.

    I tried everything I could from re-installing graphics driver and I even re-installed my Windows 10 from scratch.
    Nothing worked. I have to turn it to this forum.

    I use Windows 10 X64, my GPU is GTX 970.

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Screen shut down at different intervals

    Thank you Ron; but that is the first thing I did when I installed the operating system. That was the fist thing I did on any operating system I installed. Even though, I did it again just to make sure; no luck. Besides, the screen "shuts off" at different
    times. I believe it a Malware program. Any suggestions?

    I appreciate your help,

    David

  3. Screen shut down at different intervals

    Hi David,

    This has something to do with the Display settings of your Computer.

    To set when the Turn off the Display, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Start button on the desktop, then select Settings.
    • Open PC and devices (or System).
    • Select Power and sleep.
    • Under Screen, choose Never from the dropdown list.

    This should prevent your screen from turning off at different intervals.

    Regards.
