Your monitor have it's own inactivity mode that might need adjusting?
Try this: click your start menu, in the search box type CMD
Once the CMD box comes up, do: powercfg -h off
It will not say anything, you have just turned off hibernation (very large hiberfil.sys)
If this gives error about admin, I am on as an admin acct, you might need to run command prompt as admin from the programs/accessories listing.
I tried what you described above but I am getting the following message:
!powercfg-h off is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
This is a brand new computer and it keeps going onto a black screen ALL THE TIME!! can not watch any online TV or editing work or even brows through amazon without having to keep pushing a button or move the mouse around.
Tried changing the power setting; no change although I have set it on never going to sleep mode etc.
