windows 7 ultimate x64

Worked with Norton and fixed the issue on both my laptop and desktop. Tested power options without Google Chrome Browser loaded, monitors shut off. loaded Google Chrome Browser, monitors not shutting off. By process of elimination I found that "WeatherBug" extension was the culprit. removed "WeatherBug" extension, Monitors now shutting off.
