    Upon shutdown, my processor shut offs, the monitor screen goes blank, but the monitor lite stays green and doesn't change to amber. It used to. Now it just stays green and I have to manually shut the monitor down. What is interfering with the monitor shutdown? Thanks

    i'm not sure, but if i took a guess, i'd say it would have something to do with your computers power options in display setings...

    hope that helped...

    FYI:
    When you shut down the pc. The monitor goes blank and the amber light should go on. This does not mean that the monitor is completely turned off. The amber light is telling you that the monitor is in standy mode to conserve power. Although, the monitor is still on, but using less power.

    If your not going to use your pc for hours its best to turn off the monitor by the power button.

    Thanks for the replys. I still want the monitor to go to low power sometimes, but it won't. IT stays green no matter what power settings I use. It never shuts down to amber. Sometimes I shutdown the computer and need to leave quickly and the green light (monitor) is on at full power
