Windows 7: Monitor only entering sleep mode, system continues working.

27 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 pro x64
Monitor only entering sleep mode, system continues working.

Hello everyone,

My system suddenly stopped responding to the sleep command. The monitor goes blank but the system keeps on whirring away.

I have gone through google and tried a few things and the best one so far was to run powercfg /energy, which has produced some results that I dont understand.

Its 2 pages and I would be very grateful if you could help me get to the bottom of this problem.

Thanks in advance
