    Click on start and type in power options and press enter.
    Go into change plan settings for your selected plan.

    There will be a value in turn off screen after X and go to sleep after X
    Change them into the values you want then...

    Click on advanced power settings and select display, then under turn off display you will notice it has a high number as default, change this to match your previous selection.

    Then go up to sleep and select the + and select sleep after...then change this to the value you hit earlier.

    Press Apply then ok.

    Worked for me

    Turned off selective. Disabled all hid compliant entries. Still no monitors turning off. Obnoxious.

    am using sli/multiple monitors if it's relevant.

    the "entering standby mode" of the monitor is initiated, but it will come back to normal/on mode again, as if someone moved the mouse, pressed a key etc.
    My solidarity for an old Amiga user like myself...
    I discovered similar issues may also be caused by some audio device drivers, in particular Razer Surround and Hear (by Prosoft) and maybe others. If you examine the powersaving status with "Powercfg REQUESTS" you should find those kind of drivers locking forever audio device (and preventing sleep mode etc.)... In these cases there's a workaround though:

    powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio" SYSTEM

    and reboot.

    After going through all solutions here to no avail, I found the source.
    The "Alps Pointing-Device Driver"

    Which is bundled in any new Lenovo
    IdeaPad 710s

    In order to resolve, go to task manager, startup, and disable the Alps Pointing-Device Driver.Reboot.

    I hope this will save some time and nerves

    I had Similar problem, but all it was, was Kodi. it was minimized in the system tray, but still ran regular updates etc. So closed Kodi and my monitor went to sleep as normal.

    Screen never turns of by itself

    I have the same display-off problem. It started suddenly a few weeks ago. Could it be a bug in the latest Win10 update? I tried everything described in this thread without any success -- the display does not turn off by itself at all and when it is turned of with ScreenOff2 it comes baack on in a few seconds, Very irritating at night!

    Media players

    Hi there,
    I had the same problem and I've found that Winamp is disabling the screen saver. See the attached image about Winamp settings. Maybe there are other media players behaving same...
