    Monitors will not turn off/Screen saver won;t activate

    Hi guys. I have been trying to get my monitors to shut off so I don't get a burn in on my screens. I can't seem to figure out what is causing them to stay on. I tried enabling a screen saver which won't turn on and I also tried making a keyboard shortcut to turn off the monitor with a cmd command. Whenever I use the shortcut the monitors go down for a second and then pop right back on. I read somewhere it could be my mouse or keyboard causing it to stay awake, but I don;t think this is the problem seeing as it was fine on windows 7. Can anybody help me out?

    Since going to Win 10 I have the same problem and have traced it back to my game controllers which are plugged into a USB hub. When I unplug the hub from the computer the screen saver and screen off works fine. Good luck.
