Monitor goes to sleep/loses connection, 15 min the mouse is not active

Hi
I have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphic card and BenQ GL2450 monitor. Recently my monitor started going into sleep mode (I thing it says "No signal detect") exactly 15 min after not using the mouse or keyboards. When I click on mouse after that, I get message "DVI: input" (or something like that) and I get signal again.

I checked Change plan settings and sleep mode is disabled. I also reinstalled all my NVIDIA drivers. I noticed in Device manage that I have Generic Pnp Monitor and I actually don't know what is it.

Hi i would check the sleep setting for the monitor again you might of been on the setting for the computer to sleep not the monitor.
and for the generic pnp monitor might need to install the software for that monitor. GL2450 | BenQ USA

The latest choice that a restore point give me is from just 3 days before today. Problem with my monitor started 3 weeks before. That is not helping me
