    sleep oddity: screen goes off-on-off


    I've had this behavior since forever with Win10, 1903 to 2004. To reproduce:
    -- set the laptop screen to "turn off after 1 minute" when plugged in
    -- it does rightly go off after 1 minute of inactivity
    -- it comes back on again by itself after 4-5 minutes
    -- after 1 minute, it goes off again and stays off

    Anybody else?

    1) Have you disabled all allow wake timers (let this device wake the pc)
    2) The slightest movement can wake a pc.

    (1) nope, none enabled
    (2) the mouse gets set on a separate table

    (3) it's the same timing, always

    Next test, unplug the mouse.

    Use the laptop mouse to put it to sleep, then just wait

    Process of elimination, 1 step at a time.

    I knew it was a matter of time, not movement. Your comment brought the realization that it must be due to the mouse going to sleep after a fixed interval. And so it is.

    You win the prize, AddRAM :) TY.
