    monitor turns off after (about 10 minutes)

    I have tried to figure out why my monitor turns itself off after (about) 10 minutes, and can't figure out why it is doing it.

    When the monitor goes off I have absolutely no control. The only thing I can do is turn off the computer and power it back up.

    Monitor turns off after 2 minutes of inactivity - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    At the above post is a registry edit that they say sometimes helps. I tried it... It didn't.

    I have gone to settings and changed the power settings to performance. This is a tower computer a dell 630i with 4 gigs of ram and a 750ti nvidia video card,so I want the performance out of it. I said don't park the hard drive, don't turn off the monitor (ever). It still turns off the monitor. I know I am a little weak on info here, so if you need anymore detail please ask.

    I would love to fix this problem.

    Almost forgot. If i can continously using the computer i haven't experienced the problem. It's if I don't touch anything for a period of time is when there is an issue.

    edit August 6: I booted the computer, left the room for maybe 5 minutes might not have even been that long and the monitor was already black and non responsive. please tell me someone has an idea.
