Weird Display Setting Bug

    Windows 8.1


    I'm having the same issue. I have my computer set to never sleep, but the monitor turns off after 15 minutes. It then comes back on and just displays a black screen with the mouse cursor. It will stay like that for hours and never actually turn off. I'm not using a display port connection though, my Asus monitor is just connected via DVI. I'm running Windows 8.1 and I have an XFX Radeon HD 7870 card.

    Yeah what's weird but for me the problem went away for like a few weeks or so and then has now come back. Super frustrating.
