Bought a Dell touchscreen inspiron one 2320...thought it would be better than my two year old Dell (Don't see it yet).....I am an average user and i am not impressed....Anyway the question is why does the monitor go black after 1 minute????I have done all the normal stuff in power options....Change power saving settings...change when the computer sleeps....choose when to turn off display.....turn hibernation on or off. I upload to YouTube and it the shutting down makes it frustrating....any suggestions?

Yes you can touch the keyboard or mouse and it will come back. Depending on how long it (naps?) depends on how long it takes to come back. long periods it goes back to sign in........

I wonder if reset of the BIOS would do it.

I guess I was unclear in the beginning. The screen goes black after 1 minute with no activity

I have seen bios with power management settings in them (time outs for monitor and hard drive power down) I would enter the bios and look to see if your computer has the settings in the bios. bios settings will overrule os settings
