    Monitor goes to sleep unbidden

    I have been into the bios;set my computer to Always On yet, my monitor still falls asleep after about 5 minutes of inactivity. I have a cable connection and I want to turn my monitor off when I chose, not when it decides it wants to take a nap (smile).

    Will one of you smart people out there tell me how to fix this annoyance?

    Check to see if you have the screen saver turned on with the "Default" or "Blank Screen" set as the screen saver.

    In answer to your question, I don't use screen savers. I never saw the need. But, I'm glad you posted to my question because I found the answer. I was fooling around on the computer and just happened to open control panel and decided to click on Display and opening tabs when lo and behold my settings had been changed, perhaps when I reinstalled Windows, Always On was still ok, but Shut down the monitor and the computer were checked and I know that I would not have done so with the option to be always on selected, that wouldn't have made sense.

    Therefore there is no more problem but I thank you for replying so swiftly.

    Have a good day today & and even better one tomorrow.
