Can only power off display once.

2011-08-21, 4:51 AM

So, when I first boot up my computer, I am able to power off my display, either by hitting fn+f3 or by right-clicking the battery and selecting "power off display".  Works fine.  However, once i turn the screen on by using the keyboard/mouse, neither fn+f3 nor selecting "power off display" works again until the comptuer shuts down, goes to sleep, or hibernates.  Then, it works fine again.


Thanks

When it happens, go to command prompt, and type
powercfg /requests
And hit enter.

It'll list a program under Display, and that will be what's preventing the display from turning off.
