Skull Canyon NUC is not able to turn on monitor after it is turned off due to inactivity Windows 10 x64

Jump to solution

I am using a DELL S2718HN/NX monitor connected on HDMI port, but I had similar issues with another brand as well.

If I select in Power Options (Windows 10) the computer to go to Sleep in say 10 minutes when idle, everything works fine. It goes to sleep and when I press a key it turns back on just fine.

However, I do not want the NUC to go to sleep, just to turn off the monitor (because I use it as media server and I need it on). So I change the configuration to Sleep: Never, Turn display off: 10 minutes.

Now the problem issues: Display is turning off, but when I press a key it does NOT turn on. Everything else is working, but the display is off. I can connect to the NUC with TeamViewer and see the desktop.

From TeamViewer I can put the NUC to sleep and then, when I press a key the monitor turns on fine. Sleep works ok, but display off does not.

What I have noticed by looking into the Device Manager (with team viewer) while the display was off, is that at the moment I press a key to wake up the monitor, the monitor driver switches from PnP Generic Monitor to Non-PnP Generic Monitor, and the monitor remains off.

As stated above, if from this state I put it to Sleep and then press a key, it turns back to PnP Generic and monitor turns on. I have also tried DELL's monitor driver as well but it behaves the same.

Any ideea anyone?

In order to try to fix this problem, we can try to install driver 4849:

Just to confirm if this scenario might be related to a regression bug, if the problem remains with the driver above, please install the following which is version 4821:

Did you make any recent software/hardware changes on the NUC, like a Windows update?

 

In reference to this problem, did the NUC work fine before?

 

Did you get in contact with Microsoft about this scenario in order to get further suggestions?
