    Monitor Will Not Switch Off...

    Hey guys, I'm running Windows 10 Pro and I've set my monitor to turn off after 10minutes in "Power saving" but it doesn't turn off. It stays on all night...

    Anyone know what I can do?

    What monitor and GPU are you using?

    I would first try reinstalling the drivers for your GPU and monitor (if it has any).

    Thanks, but I already tried re-installing the Nvidia drivers a few times.

    Is there something else I can try?

    I've noticed that the monitor will now sometimes turn off and sometimes stay on...

    Is there a way to tell Windows 10 to turn off the monitor when I "Lock" the PC?
