Re: my monitor keeps going into sleep mode

it's a power saving thing. if you're running windows, click on your Start menu, then Settings, then Control panel, then Power options. you can then set the timers, including "turn off monitor," for whatever you wish.  if you're not on a windows PC then look for wherever your power settings are. you can also usually set this in the BIOS when you cold boot, but it's easier for most people to just do it in the operating system so don't worry about that unless you can't find any other way to do it.

Re: my monitor keeps going into sleep mode

you have your sleep mode turned on and you need to turn it to never go to sleep, you do this in your screen saver settings normally it is right click on the desktop screen... Hope this helps..

Every 10 minutes?

YOu might want to check to see that your computer has the latest drivers for your monitor

 

Some monitors consider outdated drivers or no drivers as "no contact" with the computer and that can trigger their sleep or power off feature ("Smart monitors" are stupid that way)

I have the same problem about my monitor going into sleep mode. I checked the timer for the screen saver it says 10 minutes but my monitor goes into sleep mode every 30 seconds or so. Very annoying. Help please.

Re: my monitor keeps going into sleep mode

I'm having similar problems. Monitor goes to sleep randomly and only comes back on when I press the "Sleep" buttom on the keyboard. It's getting rediculous. I have set my Power Settings to NEVER in all cases and have turned off the screen saver but it doesn't seem to "fix" the problem. Downloaded and installed the current drivers for my video adapter and checked the cabel connections. Still "No Joy."

Any ideas?
