My monitors lose connection if PC idles

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This issue develops with Windows 8 a few months after a fresh OS install (so if I reinstall the OS, it will be fine for several months).

But as it is, if I leave my PC to idle, my monitors lose connectivity. Once I move my mouse, the monitors reconnect (once in a blue moon, it won't reconnect--the PC will just crash).

Here's the weird thing. I disabled hibernation, I disabled screen saver, power options are for max performance...

I don't understand.

EDIT: I'm an idiot. Just checked my power options... for some reason, it's set to turn off monitors after 15 minutes of idle... facepalm smh...

Little tip for you. If you move your mouse and the monitors don't wake up (computer crashed)... simply power the monitor down, and turn it back on. My monitors do that sometimes on Win8 as well.
