I did not see anything regarding to the Power locked out function, may be it's time to call HP. Please post back what you find out from HP.
I look at HP WEBSITE: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01632269&tmp_track_link=ot_recdoc/c01643091/en_us/c01632269/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3770762


Locking OSD settings
When the OSD is locked, settings cannot be changed in the OSD menu. The OSD functionality is enabled or disabled by pressing the Menu button and holding it for 10 seconds. Upon disabling the OSD, an OSD Lock-out message is displayed for 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked and an OSD menu button is pressed, the OSD Lock-out message is displayed for an additional 10 seconds. When the OSD is locked, pressing the OSD menu button for 10 seconds unlocks the OSD and displays the main menu. Identifying monitor conditions
Special messages display on the monitor screen for the following monitor conditions:

  • Input Signal Out of Range : Indicates the monitor does not support the input signal because the resolution and/or refresh rate are set higher than the monitor supports. Recommended refresh rates are as follows:
    • For the w1858 monitor: 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz.
    • For the w2338h monitor: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz.
  • Monitor Going to Sleep : Indicates the screen display is entering a sleep mode.
  • Check Video Cable : Indicates a video input cable is not properly connected to the computer or monitor.
  • OSD Lock-out : When the OSD is locked, the warning message OSD Lock displays for 10 seconds.
  • No Input Signal : Indicates the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer on the monitor video input connector. Check whether the computer or input signal source is off or in the power-save mode.
  • Auto Adjustment in Progress : Indicates the auto-adjustment function is active and in process.

    Hi there.
    OSD Lockout or On Screen Display Lockout message is that irritating on-screen message that sometimes pops up when you switch on your monitor. This completely locks all monitor settings.
    This problem has most likely happened to everybody at some stage or another. Everything has worked fine until now you turn on your monitor and have a message glaring you in the face displaying something about "OSD Lockout". This doesn't allow you to change any of your monitors settings, including the setting intended to turn off this message. While this problem mainly happens on HP monitors from my looking around I know that others have encountered it on other brands as well. The fixes I provide below should work on those monitors too so don't fear if your monitor isn't an HP model.
    The HP Fixes
    FIX 1
    Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the monitor's Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait a few seconds (just to be sure I'd give it anything around 20-30 seconds) and then try again.
    FIX 2
    Instead of holding down the Power button, turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
    FIX 3
    Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
    FIX 4
    The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. If your not a seasoned veteran at opening up electronics (and knowing where all the screws go back into) then this could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitors for me to give a step by step instruction guide for you. If you have warranty this is where you should use it, I suggest you contact the manufacturer.
    The AOC Fixes
    FIX 1
    Turn off the monitor, hold menu and power button together for 10 seconds then turn back on.
    Currently these are the most commeon fixes.

    How do I remove 'OSD LOCKOUT' from my monitor/screen?


    Try holding the power button or the menu button of the monitor for about 5 - 10 seconds. This should remove the OSD Lockout message. Consult your monitor's reference manual if you still have problems.

    What does osd lockout mean and how do i get the box off my computer


    Lockouts occur when the software driving the OSD encounters a problem or conflict--akin to your PC's operating system freezing.
    Follow this link for more info: http://www.thefakegeek.com/2009/04/how-to-unlock-an-osd-lockout-problem/

    Basically you have Four options to solve an OSD lockout.

    Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.

    Fix Two:
    Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

    Fix Three:
    Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

    Fix Four:
    The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

    Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

    osdlockout.jpg This has most likely annoyed many of you at some point. You turn on your monitor one day and see a jeering message telling you something about an "OSD Lockout". It doesn't allow you to change any of your monitors settings, including the setting intended to turn off this message. While I've only seen this error on HP monitors I know that others have encountered it on other brands as well. The fixes I provide should work on those monitors too. (Note: OSD stands for On Screen Display.)
    Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
    Fix Two: Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.

    Osd lockout? How do I get the on screen display unlocked?


    OSD Lockout prevents changes being made to the monitor through the use of the front panel buttons. When the OSD is locked, pressing a button from front panel displays OSD Lock-out for about 10 seconds. You can quickly remove the OSD Lockout message by pressing a front panel button again. To unlock the OSD, press and hold the Menu button until the Main menu displays, about 10 seconds. To lock the OSD, press and hold the Menu button until an OSD-Lockout message displays, about 10 seconds.
