    Windows 10 monitor does not go to sleep (ignores power setting)


    Hello, I need some help here. I did a clean install of Windows 10 20H2, I downloaded ISO 20H2 19042.631 from TechBench and installed with no problems, I set up all of my programs, drivers (including monitor driver), disabled some services, etc as I would with any other Windows version, working fine so far, except my monitor never goes to sleep at any amount of specified time, it just stays on and I have to turn it off manually, the version I had before was 1809 and never had this problem. I haven't touched any power setting or changed anything nor I modified the power plans; they are as it comes, stock. I've tried looking for a solution, but none worked, I am thinking I may need an update, but I'd like to know which one because I am always cautious with updates and such, if there is any that fixes this. I reinstalled the same ISO clean to test if I may have compromised the first install and did exactly the same thing, nothing installed. Full clean install did nothing on this regard and my monitor does not go to sleep. The strange thing is that Suspend works perfectly fine and computer comes back quickly too; it turns off monitor and everything, but the option to ONLY turn off the monitor without Suspend is not doing anything. I even removed the Nvidia driver to check and does the same thing. What can I try? Please help! Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 ignores sleep settings

    I am struggling with windows 10 ignoring my sleep settings. After just a few minutes of inactivity (something like 5 min) the computer monitor turns off and the hard drive goes to sleep. I previously followed some forum suggestion to change power mode
    and change it back and reset to defaults which seemed to work for a while, but no longer works for me. I have tried various settings but Windows10 seems to ignore the changes. I am not using a screen saver.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that you are facing issues with the Windows 10 Sleep, we will look into this for you. However, in order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • What is the make and model of your system?
    • Was there a major change or an update on your system, prior to which you weren't facing this issue?


    Meanwhile, this issue could be related to the Hybrid sleep and the Fast Startup. Hence, I would suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it works for you.



    Steps to turn off Hybrid Sleep:

    1. Click on Start icon.
    2. Type Control Panel and press Enter.
    3. Click on Power Options, then click on Change plan settings.
    4. Click on Change advanced power settings and expand
      Sleep
      option.
    5. Now expand Allow hybrid sleep and then change settings to
      Off.
    6. Click on Apply and then OK.


    Steps to turn off Fast Startup:

    1. Click on the Start icon.
    2. Type Control Panel and press Enter.
    3. Click on Power Options.
    4. Click on Choose what the power buttons do.
    5. Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
    6. Under Shutdown settings, uncheck the Turn on fast startup box.
    7. Click on Save changes. This will turn off fast startup.

    Restart the system and check if the issue still persists.



    We would also like you to open command prompt (Admin) after the PC wakes up. (Type in Windows search
    CMD and then right click on it, select Run as Administrator)



    Then type the command as mentioned in the /lastwake & /energy
    section from this Powercfg command-line
    options
    article.



    We await your response.

  4. Windows 10 monitor does not go to sleep (ignores power setting)

    Screensaver Ignores Power and Sleep Settings

    I have had two PCs that are totally ignoring the Screen settings in Power and Sleep. The Screen setting is set to Never, but the screensaver comes on after a minute or so nonetheless.

    In one of those PCs, the Sleep setting is being followed. Don't know about the other.

    The PCs are custom branded

    • Intel DQ35JOE motherboard on the latest BIOS rev
    • Intel Q8200 CPU
    • 4 x 2GB DDR-800 various brands
    • 1 TB HD
    • WiFi card
    • Windows 10 Pro
    System has been tested for 24 hours with Prime95 and no errors are reported.

    Ran the Power Troubleshooter and all it did was reset the Screen and Sleep settings to the defaults.

    Setting are verified in the Control Panel.

    Any ideas?
