There's nothing you can do besides manually turning the monitor off before turning off your PC, or you can do it after but that's more steps.
The LED setting in the OSD brilliantly doesn't apply to the monitor while it's in sleep mode, so even if there wasn't coil whine you have to deal with a blinking blue light that can't be stopped.
The minimum time for the off timer is 1 hour that you would have to deal with coil whine, if we could make it 1 minute after being in sleep mode that would have solved this problem.
Enabling strobing enables coil whine most people notice as well.
Samsung's engineers still have their mothers dress them every morning
If someone knows of a more convenient way of stopping the monitor from entering sleep mode/blinking light and noise mode I'd like to know too.
Even if you could make the LED always on also in sleep mode I'd just cover it with some tape and the noise would be gone, but it has to default to sleep mode and default to blinking coil whine...
I hate this monitor so much
So did you finally end up keeping one/giving up on return roulette? I'm still trying to get one without bleed.

I can see that a lot of you had various issues with it, I myself love it so far and I am not planning to return it, actually I will use it a s long as I can.
And no, I have no issues with sounds, as for the LED I don't care - I always turn everything off, it's an old habit of mine, I dislike leaving stuff plugged in when I don't plan to use it for countless hours.
Overall it's the best monitor I had, and my advice to others would be - buy directly from the manufacturer.
I did it trough a PC store like I mentioned, they are direct distributors of the monitors they sell and also managed to contact me with Samsung and explained the situation. Result - they sent me Feb 2017 model who has 0 issues not counting the one with the green wallpaper that happens only and only there (still a mystery to me), so my next one will be some Dell UltraSharp(or HDR one) as a 2nd monitor for Photoshop and some coding stuff.
Where'd you buy that did that? Somewhere in the US? If so, please lawd, tell me how.
I just got my most recent one from Samsung directly. It's a November revision, and while the calibration report is fantastic, it also suffers from backlight bleed. It is
the best one I've used so far, so there's that. I guess. Not worth much when I've been trying to buy this damn thing since late last year.
It's such a beautiful screen, otherwise; it makes me hesitant to give up on it. Now if only I could get one that was properly put together.
I don't even know where else to go as far as options. I feel the next logical step up is 4K, and those monitors aren't quite at a decent price/performance/feature mix yet. I even checked one, an ASUS, on Amazon out of curiosity, wondering if I should go with that instead, and one of the top reviews is about...the level of atrocious backlight bleed. **** is everywhere, innit?
