Windows 10: Shortcut for turning monitor off does not work anymore.

    Shortcut for turning monitor off does not work anymore.


    I have an Acer Aspire E 15. Since the last Windows update (about November 1st 2016), Fn+F6 to turn the monitor off does not work anymore. It happened to other Acer users. It works only as long as I do not release the Fn key. I tried holding the key for an hour (with a cup and a spoon) and it works. The monitor stays off as long as I do not use the cup for anything else! I am fortunate enough to own many cups and spoons, but wouldn't it be possible to make a short cut that says press Fn+ F6 but does not say "release F6"?
