    Disable screen wake from notifications ?


    My screen is set to turn off after a while of inactivity, but whenever i get a notification the screen wakes for about 10 seconds or so then turns back off. This computer being in my bedroom, it's easy to see how it this can be a nuance. This only started happening in the newest update.

    Is there anyway I can disable the screen wake up but keep the notifications on?

    Have you looked at the 'quiet hours' option? , I don't think it's possible to set the times under settings, just turn them on and off , but you can edit them via the registry.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I've tried it but Quiet Hours does not stop the screen from waking. I also had all notifications disabled for a while, which does stop the screen from waking, but this obv makes me miss notifications while I'm actively on the PC.

    Any other ideas?
