Will not recover from Power Monitor turn off

Use to have the Windows XP Power Monitor set to turn off the monitor after 5 minutes of inactivity. When the mouse or keyboard use was sensed it would turn back on. This no longer works. It still turns off but won't turn on unless I reboot the computer. I can still get almost the same effect by using screensaver set to a blank screen. Screensaver still works. I've tried the monitor on a couple different computers also using different cables, so I know it's the monitor causing the problem.

SOURCE: Screen Saver no longer runs when Microsoft wireless mouse 3000 is installed.

this is a common problem when using wireless equipment in windows. Especially on Dell notebooks. The PCMService.exe program starts when the computer starts and interaction at some level between this and the Wireless reciever prevents the computer from becoming idle. Therefore, the screen saver and the other idle-related features do not start. this issue may also occur if the PCM and DVDLauncher services are running in the background. This issue also occurs in Windows Vista premium and in Windows Vista Ultimate because of the media center functionality that is built in.

Microsoft reccommends plugging in your wireless device and visiting http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ to get the "optional hardware update" named "Microsoft HID Non-User Input Data Filter." This should fix the problem.

Microsoft also reccommends two possible "workarounds" for this problem if you do not want to install the update or if the update does not work, both are relatively simple:

1- turn off the PCMService.exe program. to do this, first you open the system configuration (start->run->msconfig.exe). on the startup dab of the configuration window, click to clear the PCMService startup item check box. Apply, Close, and if/when prompted, restart your computer.
2- Remove the PowerDVD Software (not advised if you use this software for watching DVD's on your notebook). To do this, open the add or remove programs window (start->run->appwiz.cpl), locate PowerDVD, click change/remove, and follow the steps through for removal of the program.

Sounds like KVM has a bug. Maybe their website has a fix.

SOURCE: Logitech S520 mouse and keyboard Screensaver and power shut down

Not a solution but it may bring some light to the problem,

There is some program calling windows every 10min or so... that's why your screen saver gets interrupted. You might need to check which program is it. Or guess it out.

Hope it helps, if you have more doubts feel free to ask.

The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

This is an adjustment made in the control panel under I believe Display. From there you will have an option for Screen Saver. It should all be in there.

When I leave my computer for more than 5 minutes, the monitor turns black and I am unable to access my data. I have to use the power button to shut down and start all over again.


Just change the power settings to never turn your monitor off or never put your pc to sleep when idle.

For Windows 7:

Click on Start.

Go to Control Panel.

Go to Power Options.

Click on Change Plan Settings.

Make sure both Turn off the display and Put the computer to sleep is set to never.

Click on Save Changes.

Restart your pc.


The steps should be similar for Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Created a 300 picture slide show on my pc. the screen will go blank after 30 minutes and i have to hit the return key or touch the pad. Is this a sleep setting issue or kodak?


I suspect you have a screen saver set up that blanks the computer screen after 30 minutes.
If you are running Window XP, right-click your mouse on the desktop, choose Properties, from the Display Properties dialog, click the Screen Saver tab, then in the Wait box, increase the amount of time before the screen saver activates. Click the OK button when you are through.
Good luck,

Monitor comes on for 2 seconds and then goes all black. What type of problem do I have?


May be you have set "Changed" the setting of your monitor power. If it's set then try this step and see whether it's helpful to you or not. In Windows 7, Vista, or XP, to change the power management settings. To change power management settings in Windows 7, Vista, or XP: Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
For Windows 7 and Vista From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then choose Power Options.
From the list in the left panel, click Choose when to turn off the display or Change when the computer sleeps.
Set your options. For each action, "Turn off the display:" and "Put the computer to sleep:", you can select times ranging from 1 minute to Never.
Click Save changes.
Windows XP From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management or Power Options. From the "Turn off monitor:" drop-down menu, select a time from After 1 min to Never. Click Apply, and then click OK.

All the Best!

My monitor keeps turning off after 5 seconds of it being on.


Assuming you are using Windows XP or Vista... Check the power management settings. (Start...Control Panel...Power). You can set whatever you want the time interval to be when the monitor goes into energy save mode or off.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby


I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

The moniter light will blink on and off randomly and the screen also turns on and off with the light. What can I do to fix this?


This is most likely due to power management settings for the monitor.

To address these settings follow the procedure below for your version of Windows.

To establish which version of Windows you have:
Press and hold the Windows Logo Key on your Keyboard + Press Pause Break Key and release.

To adjust power management settings in XP:
Click Start > Control Panel > Power Options > Adjust the drop-down menu for your Monitor.

To adjust power management settings for Vista:
Click Start > Control Panel > Classic View > Power Options > Click "Change Plan Settings under your current plan (the plan with a filled bullet) > Click "Advanced Settings" > Click Display > Click "Turn off display after"
Select 0 for none or choose the duration of inactivity to wait before Windows blanks your screen.
