    Video shut down/off


    I have my monitor set to shut down 10 min after no activity, but it's not. I have checked the settings and it's set to shut off. What else do I need to check?

    What you probably have going on is some program in thje background that is causing a lot of usage so the computer never goes idle. Try checking your task manager and see if there are any programs that are using significant CPU in the background.

    Try to restart your PC - and wait (make sure your mouse pointer are totally "dead" for those 10 min.)

    Try to restore defaults for your power plan (same place in control panel) and then change it back.
