Spontanous Monitor Power Save Mode
Posted on 2016-09-15
I have a Sweetwater Creation Station 450+ PC running Windows 10 connected via DisplayPort to two Dell P2415Q monitors, daisy chained and being used as extended displays. I am mostly using ProTools 12.5 extended across both monitors. About every 2 - 5 minutes both monitors randomly go "black" entering Power Save Mode. Shutting off and turning back on the first monitor in the series "wakes up" both monitors, but things that were visible on both monitors are visible only on the primary monitor. I haven't noticed this happening when using another computer (Dell Inspiron laptop) running Windows 7 is connected in the same configuration to the same monitors using miniDisplayPort ouput/cables. This spontaneous loss of signal is incredibly disruptive to my workflow. Appreciate your help!
