Windows 10: Monitor turns off after 10min (not screensaver or power settings)

    Monitor turns off after 10min (not screensaver or power settings)


    Hello just few days ago monitor (Asus PG278Q) started turning off after 10 min while watching media or idle.

    Checked screensaver: set to 'none'
    Checked power settings: max performance, set to never shut down or sleep.

    What else can turn off monitor except screensaver of power settings?

    PC settings:
    - i7-4790k
    - asus PG278Q
    - win 10 x64 Home
    - 16GB PC2400
    - SLi GTX 980 Ti
    - 512GB M.2 for OS
    - 4GB sata6 for media

    Anything would be helpful, already loosing all hope.
    Btw tried settings screensaver to some other and choosing 60 min but it still turns off after 10 min or earlier if set so it's not screensaver.

    Hello snaf2k, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Double check using the tutorial below to see if you may have the display set to turn off after 10 minutes instead of "Never" or what you want.

    If it's screensaver of power options - then already tried.

    What do you mean "no it's not"? It was exactly about screen saver and power options.. I also went further and tried changing regestry "ActiveScreensaver=0" but seems that is same as regular screensaver option.

    I'm out of choices.. guess will have to restore to factory defaults..

    I mean what I posted is not related to the screen saver settings that you already tried.

    Did you look at and try the tutorial I posted? It does seem that it is the issue you may be having.

    You didn't mention that you checked the setting, and is why I mentioned it for you to check.

This happened sometimes in Windows 8.1 and still happens in Windows 10. I went into settings and changed when to turn off monitor to never and put this computer to sleep to never so why does the monitor turn off after no activity anyway?
