    I recently changed my power settings so my monitor would go off after 1 minute while running some scans. Now when I try to change that setting to always on or any other setting, my monitor keeps going black after 1 minute of not being used. Any ideas as to how I can change this? It is very annoying.

    Thanks
    Peg

    Try unplugging the monitor and letting Windows redetect it, then change the settings again.

    Didn't do anything for me. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the monitor driver with no change. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
