How to keep second monitor from going to screen saver Tags: Configuration How To Monitors Windows XP Last response: March 18, 2010 7:19 PM in Windows XP Share Schmard March 18, 2010 11:15:01 AM I want to use a second monitor as a cheap digital signage solution, but do not want that second monitor to go into screensaver or hibernation as long as the PC is on. Is there a way to do that? More about : monitor screen saver kaa0653 March 18, 2010 7:04:39 PM Go to your Control Panel and open Power Options. Change the following settings: Turn off monitor: Never Turn off hard disks: Never System standby: Never Click OK This will apply to both monitors. Schmard March 18, 2010 7:10:16 PM Thanks, but I only want the screensaver to apply to one monitor. Any ideas on that?

There may be a 3rd party app out there to do that but it's easier to just turn off the monitor when not needed. Schmard March 18, 2010 7:19:19 PM OK.Thanks for the insight. Can't find your answer ?
