We for years have always had our monitor set up: under Display Properties, Screen saver -
Screen Saver (none)
under Power Home/office desk
Turn off monitor after 10 min
Turn off hard desks Never
System standby Never

For the last couple of weeks, it works fine and then all at once it does not turn off. In order for it to work again we have to do a restart and it will work fine. It goes that way maybe for a day or two and then it will start to stay on all the time again. So we do a restart and it works again for awhile.

Could someone help me figure out what is wrong and if I can fix it. It has worked fine forever but now just started doing the not wanting to turn off.

Thanks for any help you can give us.
