  • Excellent.  Just the type of unhelpful response we have come to expect from Microsoft Technet these days.

    Would you mind elaborating so someone besides yourself knows what you're talking about?

    Little bit more meaningless babble for you Mr Dee; they all end with the OP cheesed off at the lack of support or helpful comments.  Add obnoxious replies.  Actually, Mr Dee, you done me a favour as your pleasant answer is the last straw.

    All Mr Dee asked for was some extra info. I think before you threw your toys out of the pram, he was willing to help. A title is not enough of a description for help when people cant either see the issue or remote in.

    I am not sure why its by design. Best case scenario it moves applications/folder/etc from the display they belong to and moves them into another (that doesn't sound like a good design choice)... Worse case scenario it causes some minor glitches. And this is without even talking about icons being moved around....

  • I just encountered this issue with my new DisplayPort monitors in Windows 10. After I installed the proper drivers for my monitors from the monitor manufacture site (in this case Dell) it worked like a charm. I can turn the monitor off without windows going funky, it still maintains the desktop as if the monitor was on.

    I too am having the same problems on windows 10 with an Old but beautiful Dell XPS700 Jet Black with an NVIDIA GTX950 connected to a 40 inch Panasonic Viera, I don't think it's good enough that there is not a solution or a workaround for this. Microsoft you need to resolve this as it's exasperating that I go away for a bit and come back to find that I cant get a signal and have no other way of safely shutting down windows apart from holding down the power button. Simply not acceptable, your tech gurus so guru it :)

  • Hello, everyone.

    I'm checking to see if there's any progress in this question.

    I'm coming from this thread I found: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/8a9b5aa7-fe33-4e6d-b39b-8ac80a21fdc2/disable-monitor-off-detection-how?forum=w7itprogeneral&prof=required

    I didn't use to have this problem: I'm on a DELL with 2 monitors, but was using an older display driver which allowed me to turn off my monitor without the computer knowing it was down a monitor.

    Unfortunately, from time to time the display refresh would be delayed causing a x116 BSOD. Usually that was a "once in a blue moon" kind of thing, but IT updated something which seems to have made it a "within a half hour of starting up" kind of thing.

    The BSOD problem seems to have been resolved by going to DELL and updating my display driver. (I'm now AMD Radeon HD 6350 that also came with a Catalyst control center.) Unfortunately, now it is smart enough to know when I turn off the display.

    I will find out if the changing DMMEnable DDCPolling to 0 in the Registry will fix things the next time I boot up.

    Otherwise I'll just have to be a bad human and leave it on all the time, wasting energy.

    Thanks for any leads.
