One of two displays won't sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2005/03/25 -

Hey All

I have two Samsung 913v LCD displays running on a Dual 2.5Ghz G5 PowerMac. I have the Energy Saver system pref set to sleep at 30min. One of the displays goes to sleep with the computer like a good little monitor but the second display shows a Cable disconected/No signal message when the machine goes to sleep. The monitors are connected via VGA adapters, one to the DVI connector and the other ro the ADC port. It is the one connected to the ADC that doesn't sleep. Is this just the nature of the beast or am I missing something?

Best regards

John

Have you checked the monitor's own internal menu options? On my LaCie CRT monitors, the menu options allow the user to choose whether the monitors display a 'no signal' message or switch off when no VGA signal is detected.

I checked; there's no such setting. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
