jmdz06Hello, I have a multi-monitor setup (2 on DP and one on HDMI) with a GTX 1080 Ti and Win 10 64-bit. I've noticed that for the past several weeks (maybe 8 or so) that when my monitors enter standby mode due to PC inactivity, there's a 50-50 shot that when I move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard that they will not turn on. I have the monitor sleep time set to 30 minutes, but the PC sleep setting is disabled. The PC functions normally otherwise (I get music/youtube to play and the like) and I don't see any errors in the system event viewer suggesting there was a GPU driver issue. What I've tried:- Unplugging the cables and plugging them back in- turning the monitors power off/on- updating GPU drivers (445.87 - that was the second time I tried updating drivers)- Different combinations of monitors (ie all 3, different pairs and only 1)- different DP ports The only way I've been able to resolve the issue is to manually power down the PC and restart it. I tried searching this and other forums, but it seems the only results I can find are related to the PC entering sleep mode which doesn't pertain to my issue. Any thoughts?
SajinYep, removing the nvidia hd audio driver, and only running the standard microsoft driver will help with sleep issues.
jmdz06Hey all - Thanks for the suggestions. I think I've managed to figure it out... After pulling out what little hair I had a bit of luck. There was another recurring issue that I hadn't connected to this one - when gaming (and only while gaming), the displays would randomly go blank and the only way to recover was to restart the PC. It would happen no matter what game and at seemingly random intervals. One time when I reset the computer, right after POST, I got a message saying something about making sure the video card power was connected. Odd, but I heeded the advice and made sure all the connections were tight - at the PSU, at the GPU and at the MOBO for good measure. After that little back-to-basics (seriously, is it plugged in?!) exercise, I'm now 11 days free of both the random crashes and all 3 monitors will wake up from sleep as expected. So, moral of the story... don't skip the basics :)
