    Question How to keep monitor turned on?

    Hello
    I need to know how to keep my monitor from timing out and going black while watching movies?
    I always have to keep moving the mouse or it goes black but the movie keeps going and the sound is ok, so it must be a setting I think?

    Any help would be great and sure would help make a movie watching experience much better.
    Thanks Mark

    In control panel, power options you can change this monitor setting to never instead of 20 minutes or whatever it is set on now.

    If you can't find this, let me know what system you are using and I can give you more info

    Ok, go into control panel, then click power options and you will see the window below




    Then click "Change Plan Settings" on whatever plan is selected as shown below




    Then a new window will open as you see below, and at the top will be the monitor setting. Simply change this drop down choice to whatever you want, a few hours or never
