Monitors keep powering off

Hi,
I have a few users who are using dual screens. Let's call the screens A and B
Screens A use VGA cables to and Screens B use USB-to-DVI cables.

I have already checked the WIndows 10 power settings and the green settings on the monitors.
But Screens B keep "going to sleep" after about 30 minutes.
The only way to wake them , is by unplugging the USB-to-DVI cable and plugging it back in.
I checked the USB power settings too.

Have you made sure you have the updated drivers for that specific USB adapter? Also check your usb, chipset and graphics drivers.

There's also a power setting in device manager that will read "allow this device to power off to save power" make sure that is unchecked.

Did you try device manager >> Universal serial bus controller > connect your USB-to-DVI cables to USB port >> find it on the list of bus controllers >>  right click on it >> properties >> Power management >> remove the tick before Allow the computer to turn off this device.

What type of monitors do you have?

- You should be able to set Turn Off Time and other things in your monitor Menu. Check this too.

- Also update all your drivers to the latest version.

- Check your power management options in Windows to see if you have it set to turn off the monitor after X amount of min

- Check the temperature of your GPU (using e.g. Open Hardware Monitor).

What happens when you change the power/USB-to-DVI cables?

Hi Everyone,
I have already unchecked the "allow computer to turn off this device". I think the problem is either the USB-to-DVI adapters or the monitors.
Other people who use different USB-to-DVI adapters or monitors do not have this problem.

Please try one of the other USB-to-DVI adapters (if possible) and check if that works fine with your monitor.
