Default Screen doesn't turn off

I again apologize this time for not acknowledging that it also appeares to
be hapeneing with other ATI cards and drivers on Vista then the 9550.

Also the fact that your problem is not being reported by others with
Vists Pre-RC1 implies that it may something unique to an ATI 9550 card
and its curent set of Vista Drivers.

Did you read the other answers (Included the one I post) ??
At this time we are 3 with 3 differents ATI's cards with this probleme!

I just noticed something, I changed to VGA analog instead of DVI (and I
actually also added a kvm switch, not sure if that matters) and now the
screen turns off. Are you guys using DVI?

this problem can be caused by the ATI driver, we all have ATI card I see.

My monitor go well in energy save mode under XP, and with the Beta2 there
was no probleme itoo.

a workaround may be a shareware Turn Off Monitor at http://ww.rtsoftwares.com

Same issue for me.

Dell 9100 with Radeon x600 graphics

Monitor powered down just fine in previous version of Vista but not after
up[grading to Pre-RC1

I did notice that the Upgrade did not load my monitor driver - it picked a
standard driver. After manually loading the correct driver ( Dell 2005) I
saw no change - problem still there.

I hope they fix this one soon!

I have Vista pre-RC1 build 5536. This is the first build I've tried on this
computer. I dual-boot into XP, works fine. I have a problem with that the
screen never goes into energy-save mode. After the set time out (20
the screen goes black, but the monitor is still on, I can see that the
backlight is on, and the LED shows that it's on.
I have an AGP ATI Radeon 9550 graphics card. I've tried both with
graphics drivers, and ATI, some issue.

Thanks for any suggestions,
