question about my monitor - LG FLATRON IPS236

by asafisr / October 2, 2012 6:01 AM PDT

Hi everyone,

I just bought my new monitor, it's a LG 23" LED with IPS panel. the monitor is working great, and its AMAZING!

I only have one quesion:
when my PC get's in to "SLEEP MODE" the monitor is showing :"Check signal cable".
i want that it to be turn-off.
my Secondery Display LG Flatrton L1953R does turn it self off when the computer is going in to "SLEEP MODE".

Does anyone have any idea how can i solve it??

Thanks a LOT!

power options

Try going into the power options of your OS. On Windows 7 you can search for "power options" or find that in the Control Panel and there are options for "Choose when to turn off display" or preferred plans. I have it on balanced, and I have this monitor, and I have it set to turn off after 25 minutes and it works. But I'm not sure if fiddling around with this changed that. You may also want to be sure you're using LG's driver instead of "Generic PnP" that Windows tries to solve. I noticed a huge difference in gamma with LG's driver.
