Running Windows 7 Ultimate on HP DFV6000 laptop.

Screen saver is set to blank screen. Computer is set to never sleep. Display is set to turn off after 10 minutes for both battery power and wall current. The display never turns off even though no programs are running. It will literally stay full on even after several hours.

Any suggestions?

Just as an experiment, try setting your Screen Saver to None and see it that solves the problem.

I tried your suggestion. There is no change. Screen saver didn't kick in either.

Hi again,
No your Screensaver will not turn on when set to None.
You might have a program(s) that is(are) Constantly running in the background that will not let your Monitor go to sleep, you might have to check each program (i.e. your Anti-Virus and or Securtity software) and possibly some hardware set up that won't let it sleep neither.
Anyway, other more experienced members or moderators should be along soon.

And a Happy Early Birthday, hopefully you can get this solved on or before your birthday.

Take care
Ray
