I have my monitor display set to turn off after 15 minutes. Screen saver is
set to engage after five minutes. Problem is, once the monitor turns off, it
will not turn back on unless I reboot by pressing the power button on my
computer. There is nothing else I can try because the monitors (dual) are
both completely blank. The only way I can prevent this from occurring is by
disengaging all screen savers and 'turn off display'. Then the screen saver
never engages, and monitors never to blank, but I have to press the power
buttons on the monitors to turn them off when I am not using the computer.
I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit, with all updates installed. I
have 3GB memory. My video card is an ATI Radeon X1600 Series with 512MB
memory. I just updated the drivers
yesterday (11/11/07) to 8.421.0.0 dated
9/28/07. My computer is a HP running at 3.6MHz. Other than the display
issues, the computer runs just fine.
What adjustments should I make so that I can use my screen saver and so that
I can set my display to turn off after 15 minutes?
