I have my monitor set to sleep after 2 hours. I have the GPU suspended currently in boinc. However, the monitor never sleeps. the screen saver will just run constantly. I leave the house for 5 hours come home, its still on. I go to sleep, when i wake its still on. Ive tried to search but only find issues with monitors not waking up. Please help.

specs
i5 2500k 8g corsair ram, Nvidia gtx 660ti by evga ( 295.73 driver )

Do you have set the BOINC screensaver to go to blank screen?

I found this setting you have mentioned, we will see if this allows for a monitor shut down. Thank you for the tip I never thought to look at the actually screen saver option.
