    i've search the forum with no result :)
    my problem is kinda weird,
    i've set a time in power options to turn off monitor (MSI VR420)
    but after reaching that time, it turns off...just for a sec i think and back to on again.

    fiddling with advanced power options with no avail,
    any suggestion?
    TIA:confused:

    do you have a screen saver enabled before the monitor shut off?

    I had a similar problem on my Dell laptop as the screen would not fully shut off if a screen saver was going before the monitor shut off. Once I set the screen save to "none" the laptop lcd finally went fully dark.

    Hope you will be able to find a fix for your problem

    simple solution : Run the Windows Experience Index.............that monitor on/off is actually Windows Experience Index running since ur system is idle.So just complete the assessment nd u will not face this prblm again.
