While on desktop screen goes black after 1 minute, monitor stays open
I have a very weird problem. While I am at desktop and leave computer unattended my screen goes black after 1 minute. However, my monitor stays opened i.e. it does not go hibernation. I checked everypossible thing but no solution. Uninstalled/installed my graphics driver, closed every open program on task monitor no change. Even there is no graphic driver installed on the computer it is the same.

check your power management settings. that will let you set parameters for the monitor to turn off, the hard drives
+1 to alvine's suggestion. Just set your screen saver and power management timers and you should be good to go.
