Windows 7: Monitor keeps shutting down, it shouldn't

Monitor keeps shutting down, it shouldn't

I've set the power options to never shut down the monitor, yet every 15 minutes or so of being idle it shuts down. Any thoughts?

Are you sure it's not the monitor itself shutting off? I know a lot of modern screens have 'power save' modes and shut off the screen, but I don't think they go off when there's still input from the computer... worth checking the screen's menus for though.
