Windows 7: Screen does not turn off

Screen does not turn off

Hello,

OK so basically I open power options and decide to make my laptop's screen turn off after a period of time. But it doesn't. I had the problem all the time now that I think about it, even half a year ago before my windows reinstall. It's just that I didn't thought of it like a big deal. But now my roommate is angry that my laptop's screen illuminating the room at night when i leave it to download something

I tried to look if my screensaver worked. And guess what? I didn't either (I usually don't use it). I've looked around a bit and found out that USB devices cause such problems. So I tried unplugging them all. But the problem persists.
I hope someone knows how to fix this.

Thank you.

P.S. It's a Dell Inspiron 1564 with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Hi,

I would open the power options and check that all settings are correct under the 'Advanced Settings' option. I've read about similar issues being solved after shutting the machine down then turning back on.

God...
I feel so stupid now
I rarely ever shut my computer down. I usually just close it (put to sleep).
Thanks.
