  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I am needing Help,A fix,Or Solution to the following problem.

    I set Laptop to dim,Turn off,Sleep,After set time in power options,But after set time with no activity,Mouse or keyboard,It will blink like its trying to go into standby,"Dim,Turn off And Sleep",But it won't.It will stay on forever!Never Dimming,Nor going to Sleep.So I ran an Energy Report and It is below.

    I have the latest drivers and bios for my laptop "msi gx700",I have asked msi for a bios update yet to hear back.I have tried  both bios's that msi offers for the laptop.I have also tried the following,

    I first went to device manager,Power Management and unchecked the "Allow the computer to turn off this device",And made sure,"Allow this device to wake computer",was unchecked for all USB and Bluetooth,PCIe, devices,And then rebooted an let the computer ide for set time to pass,Same response"after set time with no activity,Mouse or keyboard,It will blink like its trying to go into standby,"Dim,Turn off And Sleep",But it won't.It will stay on forever!Never Dimming,Nor going to Sleep.".I then went to device manager and disabled all USB and Bluetooth,PCIe devices, And then rebooted an let the computer ide for set time to pass,Same response"after set time with no activity,Mouse or keyboard,It will blink like its trying to go into standby,"Dim,Turn off And Sleep",But it won't.It will stay on forever!Never Dimming,Nor going to Sleep."

    I ran upgrade adviser before I paid over $275.00 for the better,Newer windows 7 Ultimate and my Laptop passed,With all hardware Compatible! I have searched Microsoft and the web to it's end,And tried several other things,To many to list,And still no Fix or Solution has worked for me,So I am here to Hopefully get to the bottom of this,And find a Solution from someone or Microsoft, Anyone, Help Please!

    Any Help Much Thankful For,

      Now when I set to dim say 1 min,It try's to every time ,but won't dim screen.When I set to sleep,It goes to sleep now ,but after 5 min. after set time,ex. set to sleep after 5 min.,It sleeps after 10 min. No matter if its set to defaults are custom plan,Its always 5 min. late,and still won't dim.Also if I set it to turn off display for set time,and have it to also sleep at later time,It will not sleep or turn off after set time,It tries to over and over again,But won't sleep or turn off.After waiting way after time set to sleep,I ran powercfg -lastwake And get "Wake History Count - 0." ,So it's not going to sleep and then waking from some device or program,Its not going to sleep in the first place,This is when I have power settings to dim after set time,turn off after set time,and later sleep.


      When it's set with turn off display to never,It's as I stated above"I set to dim say 1 min,It try's to every time ,but won't dim screen.When I set to sleep,It goes to sleep now ,but after 5 min. after set time,ex. set to sleep after 5 min.,It sleeps after 10 min. No matter if its set to defaults are custom plan,Its always 5 min. late,and still won't dim.Either way I set it ,It won't dim after set time.If I have turn off display after set time and sleep at later time,It won't do either one.

      I ran powercfg -devicequery wake_from_any", and get the list below,Which Returns all devices that support waking the computer from any sleep state.I also disabled all but"Mobile Intel,and umBus Enumerater ,and still the same effects as above.I'm at a loss of ideals.

    Hi, it's me again. I will try to explain more clear how everything is working now on my MSI GX700 with NVIDIA 8600M GT, WIN7 and BIOS 1719_122.
    I found that the problem is with NVIDIA drivers (any version).
    Standard VGA driver works perfectly - the monitor turns off.
    After installing the NVIDIA drivers (even from laptopvideo2go) the monitor don't turn off but in power settings I see "Turn off monitor after 10 min".
    I open "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution" and then "Advanced Settings", then "Monitor - Properties - Driver - Disable". Don't be afraid the monitor will continue to work. Leave all like this. After restart of the system I checked the driver of the monitor is still "DISABLED" but now the monitor turns off after 10 min. I can play games and etc.
    I know this is not normal solution but it works (of course all problems with NVIDIA drivers remain).
    With hope to help  :no idea:  bonk

    Well I am trying to let the right people know about this issue,Nvidia,Microsoft,Im not so sure it is a Nvidia problem,As the above fix works,And in doing the above fix,You are not disabling the Nvidia driver,What you are doing is disabling the monitor.sys, driver for the generic PnP monitor!You are still using the Nvidia driver for the 8600M GT,This is why you can still have the resolution and it doesn't affect gaming.If you disable the Nvidia driver you won't even get the aero effect in Windows and your resolution will go down.I believe this is a Microsoft problem with the generic PnP monitor driver.I was just wondering if its just happening on msi notebooks,Or is it all generic monitors?I'll have to do more digging,But I going to try and get this to someone who can hopefully resolve this for good,I hope!

    Any other info related to this please post,As I need all the info I can get,for a final resolution!
    Thanks,
