    In dual screen mode, screens wont go to sleep


    Hi,

    Sorry for poor english, I speak french.

    I'm runnig windows 8 on my Sony labtop. The labtop is located in the kitchen. I connect the TV in the living room in ''dual screen mode'' to the labtop. When i'm listing to music on the labtop (windows media player), the 2 screens won't go to sleep even if I choose 1min to the sleep programing function. I found that there's two ways to choose the delay, in ''power saving'' mode and in control pannel. The thing is that the fix image on the labtop that is duplicate to the TV is actually breaking the TV (the images stay like phantom).

    So please help me to find a way to activate the ''fluid ligns animation'' on the TV afer one minute of inactivity on the labtop while listing to music.

    Sometimes you have to wait until the person or persons having the proper knowledge log onto the forums.

    yeah, not everyone uses 2 screens ,and we are not all experts ,I do but mine both go to sleep with out issues, having said that I have never used a tv as the second monitor either .its quite likely a issue for you because the second display is a tv ,.and it may never sleep for you,try setting it to across both instead of duplicate
