Go into the control panel (Start>Settings>Control panel or Start>Control panel depending on how you have windows set up) and double click on "Power Options". A window will pop up. Click on the drop down menu (about half way down) to the left of "Turn off monitor" and select what you desire it to be at (mine is at 20 minutes so it won't burn an image into the LCD screen).

While your right there, you should go through and double check the rest of the power settings (I have mine set to "Turn off hard drives = Never" and "System standby = Never"). Again, set these to what you like.

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:

I don't believe this is a computer setting problem as I have tried the monitor on various computers. It only stays on for about 3 seconds.

Did it come with drivers for it? If so, have you installed them? You could also go to the manufacturers website and download and install the latest drivers for your monitor (I was unable to find your particular monitor on Dell.com....and couldn't find anything on it on the web :thumbsup: )

You could also try it without the drivers to see if that's the problem. Go through the settings on the monitor itself to see if there's a standby mode that needs to be deactivated.

If the monitor is under warranty, I'd call Dell support for some options, to include an RMA.
