Are you telling me you want the monitor to actually Power off? This is impossible. The monitior can only go into a "power-saver" mode. And you are not running any active programs such as streaming video? Or maybe you're just moving the mouse
I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 and I have a ViewSonic monitor, VP181b. I'm happy with the monitor and my computer is running beautifully, in general. However, in the last couple of months, although the Screen Saver function is working properly, the monitor won't turn off. I set the power function to turn off the monitor after some period of time (I've tried various settings), but it never turns off. Can anyone suggest a reason for this problem or, better yet, a fix?
