Question about Sylvania L181 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I saw an earlier post on this same problem, but I don't think the posted solution addressed the issue. I have a Sylvania L181. In the Windows XP Power options, I have asked for the monitor to be turned off after 5 minutes of inactivity. When the 5 minutes passes (I've tried varying periods of inactivity), the image from the computer goes away but the LCD turns completely white. I expect the LCD to go into a standby mode and for the screen to be black. The L181 seems to be doing the opposite - staying completely lit (bright white). It's almost like the LCD is doubling as a light bulb! The solution posted for a similar issue on this message board explained why the On/Off button blinks twice to indicate the LCD is in a "soft" off mode. This is fine, but it still does not explain why the LCD remains lit when it should be in standby (off). Thanks for any help you can provide!
