Monitor does not recover

HP Recommended
HP Envy Curved All-in-One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time I step away from my computer more than a couple of hours, I cannot recover my monitor.  I can hear the computer running, but my monitor stays black.  I have to manually restart every time.

@Kiihnl

Welcome to HP Forums,

Let's get straight to it, shall we..

 

I recommend we start with turning off the hybrid sleep, as that could cause such issues, Click here to View this video on YouTube:

  1. In Windows, search for and open Control panel.

  2. Make sure the View by setting is set to Category, and then click Hardware and Sound.

  3. Click Power Options.

  4. Click Change plan settings for the power plan that is selected.

  5. Click Change advanced power settings.

  6. Expand Sleep, and then expand Allow hybrid sleep.

  7. Select Off from the On battery drop-down menu, and then select Off from the Plugged in drop-down menu.

  8. Click OK.​​​

If the issue persists, the best way ahead, is to go back into "Change plan settings" for the power plan that is selected & Select Never under the drop down for turn off the display & tune the put your computer to sleep - "To your preferred time" as it should resolve the issue.

 

Let me know how that pans out

I will have a colleague follow-up on this to ensure it's taken care off,

as I need to know if the issue has been resolved, to get proper sleep at night.

feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon,

followed by clicking on 'Accepted as Solution' as it would help the community gain more knowledge, and have a great day Ahead!

Thanks for the reply; however, I have Windows 10 and my computer is not a laptop. so I don't have those options.

Within Windows 10 "settings", open the "power" application.

You could change the time before the screen enters "power-saving" mode.

 

Or, when the screen is dark, try a quick "tap" on the desktop's ON/OFF button.  Does that "wake" the computer?
