Nvidia surround monitor not sleeping - help needed

Post by myles » Mon May 29, 2017 3:34 pm

Hi all

I have a triple monitor setup running Windows 10 x64.
Aster v2.18.
2 monitors are set to use Nvidia Surround (Main PC) and 1 monitor is used for my Gaming PC.
Now the problem is that only 1 of the Surround monitors go to sleep at the set time. I updated to the latest nvidia drivers but the problem still occurs.
Any help will be appreciated...

Update 1
When I disable Aster, the monitor goes to sleep, even in Surround mode.
I tried connecting the monitors to different graphics card ports. The problem still occurs with Aster running.

Modes of energy saving is not compatible with ASTER (in most cases is working incorrectly) and is likely to be unsupported by multi-user system. Instead, ASTER uses an alternative method to turn off monitors, by sending special shutdown commands to the monitor. Not all monitors support these commands, and therefore they can not be turn off in this way. However, it is worth trying use screensaver (see attachment) on every workplace. It turns off a monitor after defined period of time. Let me know if it works.

Both monitors making up the nVidia Surround main PC are the same model, Acer S277HK.
The attached PowerSaver has a similar effect as Windows.
Monitor 1 turns off completely but monitor 2 goes black but does not turn off.
