I have an HP W2081d monitor attached to a laptop computer at me desk. The OSD timeout max is 60 seconds on the monitor despite the fact that my power settings contradict this. I do not want to have to log back into my computer every time I go 60 seconds without moving my mouse of touching a button. I cannot find a way to shut the OSD timeout option off. There are several other options to put the monitor to sleep at the time of my choosing, so I do not understand why this is even a necessary feature.
HP LCD and LED Monitors -OSDLockout Message Appears on the Screen
This document pertains to LCD and LED monitors.
One of the following messages appears on the screen (over the items being displayed).
... or similar message.
This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds.OSDlockout prevents theOSDmenu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.
NOTE:The button may be different and the procedure might vary on some monitors. Please check your monitor User Guide to find the exact procedure if this procedure does not work.
To remove theOSDLockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If theOSDLockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.
I hope this will help you
