  1. Screen monitor goes to sleep when computer turned on


    I have an HP monitor. Lately, when I turn on my computer the monitor is black, then shows "Monitor going to sleep" and never wakes up.

    I have the settings for the monitor to 'never' go to sleep, however, something's going on that keeps doing it. I don't see anything else that I can change so that every time I turn ON my computer my monitor works right away. For now, it stays in black screen mode and without a screen ON I can't possibly use my computer. Again, there's nothing wrong with my monitor. I've run tests, and it's in perfect condition.


    I'm not technical, so I need simple ways to troubleshoot my monitor and I need your help, please.

    :)

    Monitor turns off when computer goes to sleep


    Hi everyone,

    This is a really small problem but I just want to get down to the cause of it. I am running windows 10 with dual monitors and every time the computer goes to sleep one of the monitors turns off and requires me to push the power button on the monitor to turn it back on. Both monitors are LG LED 23EN43 but it only happens on one of them. Any ideas why this might be happening and how to stop it?

    PC hibernates / goes into sleep mode upon logout / screen lock

    I am using my work computer. It's a laptop with a power connection (not running on battery.) The laptop is hocked up to two monitors (a total of three monitors, counting the laptop's own screen - I usually keep my laptop closed, however.)
    Since I am at work I always lock the screen when I leave my computer. (I use the windows+L shortcut to lock the screen.) This all works fine.

    However, after about a minute the computer goes into sleep mode / hibernation. At least I think it does, because the two monitors goes black - and it takes a few seconds to "wake up the system" (the monitors doesn't come back to life immediately when I press a key on the keyboard / move the mouse, as they would if a screen saver was active.)
    This is very annoying if I step away from my computer for only a short while (like going to the bathroom.)

    Here's what I want:
    With power (not running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 15 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    Without power (running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 5 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    My best bet is that this is some sort of power saving scheme thingie, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure it to do what I want. Can someone please help me with a step-by-step guide to configure my system the way I want? Thank you.
