    That's not really what I wanted to know. My question here is whether anyone could please verify if it's normal that the screen goes to sleep if a HTML5 video (e.g. YouTube) is running in non-fullscreen without moving the mouse or anything. The sleep timer can be set at 1 min to speed up the testing.

    Sorry, had to mention that too but I don't use anything associated with sleep, everything has been turned of and blasting full speed (including OC) 24/7.

    Is it possible for you to enable the screen timer for 1 minute to verify this? Also, the PC won't go to sleep but it's just the screen turning off automatically.

    Ok, I turned on screen timer to shut down in one minute, verified it would and watched same video on youtube from Firefox and IE. FF stayed on but in IE screen turned off after a minute. I don't use IE much and so never noticed that stuff going on. IE was desktop model.

    I thank you very much for your effort, sir. I guess it's something with IE in general then.

    I guess so, it happens only in full screen mode, windowed it didn't shut screen off. FF worked ok in both modes. I have couple of other browsers, can try with them too.

    That's weird. For me it's exactly the other way around; it goes to sleep when it's windowed but not when it's in fullscreen.

    Maybe anyone else could verify this as well?
