Something (probably your network) is preventing your monitor from staying asleep. You can uncheck wake on lan in network and sharing control panel.

Other things that can keep a monitor awake are sharing media.

Hope this helps

Same problem here, even the "allow this device to wake the computer" option in device manager under network adapters is grey and I can't change it. Tried everything, googled gazzilion times, still no idea how to fix this (other then close the notebook lid)

Be sure that you have clicked "change options that are currently unavailable".
