    Screens don't turn off after specified time


    Good evening

    I have a computer with Windows 10 Professional, version 20H2, compilation 19042.804, with all updates installed.It turns out that the screens don't turn off after the specified time. So far I have tried a lot of solutions. The first thing that I tried was to select the most energy efficient profile from the Energy menu from the control panel, for example.I also went into the details of those profiles, and attempted to change many settings within there that were suggested in many forums, however, none of them seemed to work.

    The energy options troubleshooter didn't help either.I also put attention to the powercfg -requests, however, even when no requests were made and the computer was mostly idle doing nothing, the screens didn't turn off.At some moment I read that the search Indexer could be preventing the screens from turning off, however, even after stopping this process, and selecting the option in the control panel that the search indexer must respect the energy policy, still no success.At this stage I'm running out of ideas. I started to have this problem seemingly out of nowhere. I didn't make any changes to the system, only I installed the mandatory Windows updates every time that the system notified me about them.

    I know that making a system restore might be a good idea at this stage. However, I would only do this as a very last resort.Thanks in advance!

    :)

  3. Windows 10 after latest updated screen won't turn off after specified time...

    Hi Mengwee,

    Most of the time, this issue is caused by external devices that's possibly keeping the PC active which then results to the screen/display not turning off even after you've set the power settings. Try disconnecting any external devices, usually gaming devices,
    and check if the issue persists.

    We also suggest running the Power troubleshooter to automatically troubleshoot any power issue.

    Here are the steps:

    • Click on Search/Cortana, and then type Troubleshooting.
    • Click on Troubleshooting.
    • Click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power.

    If the troubleshooter shows any error message, please let us know. We are looking forward to your response.
