Prevent Monitor From Turning Off

January 6, 2013 at 11:50:22
Specs: Win 8 Pro 64 bit, Intel Dual Core 3Gb

I am running windows 8 pro on a dell xps 210 desktop with a LG M2380D monitor. The only issue I am having is with the screen turning off after a short period of inactivity (10 - 15 minutes). I have been into the power settings and changed the value for "turn off the display" to 5 hours but this is seemingly ignored. I have also clicked on advanced settings on the "Edit Plan Settings" screen and increased the duration of the "turn off display after" to 300 minutes.

Its only a small annoyance but it would be good if I could sort it out. Has anybody got any ideas?

Thanks

I haven't played with win 8 that much but are you logged in as Administrator? Who is Alison Brown, anyway?

Yes, I'm logged in as an administrator. No idea who Alison Brown is. Why do you ask?

All the windows 8 PCs have Allison Brown as a default user.
