Hi all, whenever I lock my Windows 8 PC using the WindowsKey + L the PC will lock but the monitors connected to it won’t turn off even though I’ve set them to turn off after 5minutes of inactivity. The only reason i can think of is that the Windows 8 PC is running TeamViewer.

How can I tell my monitors to turn off so I can save power?

Thanks for any help!

LCDs don't use much power. Did you try turning TeamViewer off? Media programs and remote access programs can prevent standby, hibernation, and power saving features.

I know it doesn't use much power, but if it's on 24hours a day it all adds up...

Right, I've got Teamviewer off. What else can I try?

You could pull a energy report to see if any errors are reported.
Press the Windows flag key + X
Select Command Prompt (Admin)
In command prompt type: powercfg -energy (press enter)
Once the command has completed it will show you where the report has been saved.
Typically it's in C:\Windows\system32\enegry-report

Okay I set the monitor to turn off being idle for 5 minutes and when it WASN'T locked it actually did turn off after 5minutes...

Does this help?
