Monitor won't turn on, Windows 10

Postby kbfxwynd » Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:02 pm

I am using the monitorOn/Off plugin on a computer with Windows 10. It successfully turns the monitor off at night, but does not turn the monitor back on in the morning. Any ideas?

Hello,
on windows there is no official way of turning on the monitor, the plugin uses an undocumented function of windows but it may not work on some systems. In this case you could use the the "System standby" action instead, it will also save more energy.
If your system doesn't resume from standby check the windows advanced power options and make sure the option "Allow wake timers" is enabled.
