Set Screen saver to (None).
Set "turn off the display" to Never.
Set "Turn off hard disk after" to Never.

Is your screensaver set to blank?
Blank will give the illusion that the monitor is turning off.

Check power plan settings

Check here:

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options

Then check the following options for every power plan including your current power plan.

Screen turning off after 4 seconds.
My screen just turns off after 4 seconds and the only way to get the display back up is to turn it off and on. I've checked all the cords. It was working fine a minute ago and never done this before. What could it be?
