    Screen does not turn off when Facebook is open in Chrome


    Very strange behaviour. I have my screens set to turn off after 10 minutes inactivity. This has worked fine for years.

    In the past 2 or 3 weeks, after 10 minutes the screens go to standby, then immediately turn back on, then after a further 10 minutes turn off and stay off until woken by the mouse moving.

    However if Chrome is open with Facebook, they never turn off. It is only if Facebook is the visible tab; any other tab and the screens turn off, even if Facebook is open on another tab.

    Any ideas?

    :)

    IK reinstalled the KB and a Silverlight update, no luck. I tried to remove chrome , again, using the suggested tool. Chrome was not on the list, I selected not listed. It wanted the product code. A quick internet search did not find it. I removed chrome
    using the add and remove programs.,reinstalled chrome and ran the clean up tool, no malware. chrome now opens.. I have signed in and it is working. The second removal worked. thx

    Turn off Facebook notifications in Windows 10

    I had the same issue with getting Facebook notifications in the bottom right hand side of my screen and in the notification sidebar, where I get my news alerts and others. I solved the issue from some of the information I found in this thread of questions
    and answers. Someone has posted a picture of the screen within Facebook that you need to make the change to in order for these annoying notifications to stop. However, the person that posted that Facebook screen picture did not tell you how to get to that
    screen. And, if you are not Facebook navigation savvy, you may need some assistance getting there. Here is your help to turn those notification off!

    1) Open Facebook in your browser.

    2) In the top right-hand side of the screen, you will see a tiny drop-down arrow, click on it.

    3) In the drop-down menu that appeared, click on Settings (about 3/4 of the way down the list).

    4) On the left-hand side of the screen, there is a menu; find Notifications and click on it (about in the middle of the menu).

    5) Now in the middle of the screen, is a list of Notification Settings, and in the list is Desktop and Mobile, click on it.

    6) Now, depending on where you getting the notifications (desktop, mobile, or maybe both) click on the gray button that says Turn Off.

    Viola! Problem solved in 6 not too difficult steps. But, if you, like me, didn't know where to go before now, this issue was a pain !! I too was trying to turn off the notification within Windows, so I was finding nothing but frustrating dead ends.

    I sure hope this helped!
