M93p dual monitor problems; monitor turns off and cannot be turned on again

2014-10-09, 5:27 AM


we have multiple M93p tiny computers causing problems in dual monitor setup (VGA / Displayport->DVI). Our users (already >5)  keep telling us, they leave their workplace, return, then DVI attached monitor if off and they do not find a way to turn it on. This is true; the only workaround that has been found by our users is to bring Win7/32bit into standby mode and awaking it again.
Needless to say, we turned all windows energy saving options off (computer standby/hibernate, monitor turn off). Still the problem appears.
Maybe there is something wrong with DVI power/DVI signal?

- Monitor independent, as far as I can see
- Independent from Windows energy saving modes
- BIOS updates did not help

[todo]: Try Intel/(AMD?) drivers, let users test.


I haven't seen exactly when the monitor turns off because it is reported by users. I had a testing machine, but was not able to reproduce.
