When I hook up my hp pavilion dv6 laptop up to my tv via hdmi it plays fine for a while then the screen on the laptop blacks out for a second and I have to touch the pad to restart it. It sounds like a time out issue. Can I change the settings to prevent this in the future?

You may have to change Turn of Display settings.. This is how you can do it...
- Type Power Options in the Start search.Click Power Options that will appear at the top.
Click Turn Off Display on the left side and change turn off display to never.
-Then click on Change Advanced Power Settings and scroll down to Display and Multimedia settings. Change Display to zero minutes and when sharing media to Prevent idling to Sleep.
Click ok and apply. If the problem continues type screen saver in start search and change it to zero.
