      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Monitor turns off after 15 minutes - why? [solved]

Recommended Posts

For some reason, at exactly 15 minutes, power is turned off to my monitor. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the screensaver, because whether set at 5 minutes or 30 minutes, nothing changes, or with Power Management, whether turned off or on, nothing changes. I've checked through the various logs, but I didn't see anything that allowed me to understand the problem. Ideas?
