Acer Monitor won't turn off

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just finished building a COMPLETE ALL BRAND NEW SYSTEM running XP Pro including the Acer al2216wbd 22" monitor. Under the POWER OPTIONS PROPERTIES I've set the " TURN OFF MONITOR " to 2 min, after the 2 min expires i see the power lite on the monitor go YELLOW for about 2 seconds, the screen says NO SIGNAL but 2 seconds later it goes right back into SCREEN SAVER and NEVER turns the monitor off after being on all night. i've installed the latest driver AL2216W from the ACER website and the ATI cATALYST drivers and still now luck.

Any advise or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated....

That's windows for ya Sounds like it is detecting something in the background and turning itself back on again, or something is set wrong.

Weird thing. I own the same monitor and I never had this issue. The monitor powers off after the specified time and stay dormant until someone touches the mouse or keyboard.
