Computer timing out Tags: Homebuilt TV Computer Monitors Systems Last response: November 1, 2010 9:33 PM in Systems Share cgleckman November 1, 2010 9:02:57 PM I have a custom computer that has been running great but now I have a TV I use as a monitor through digital output and a 3.5mm jack for sound. The problem is that even with movies playing or music, if I dont move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard, the tv goes standby.. I cant tell if this is caused by the computer or by the T.V. but I am out of ideas. Any help would be great!

I only have an XP machine in front of me right now, but Vista/Win7 are pretty much the same. Right-click desktop -> Properties/Personalization -> Screen Saver -> Monitor Power Verify whether or not "Turn off monitor" is set to something like "15 minutes". You want it set to "Never". m 0 l cgleckman November 1, 2010 9:29:15 PM Its set to "never," I already checked that.. thanks though m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
