Can't turn screen back on when folding

Postby PaulGu » Thu Jul 02, 2020 6:49 pm

I'm running FAH on a Windows 10 64 bit desktop. My power settings turn off the screen after 10 minutes of inactivity. Once this has happened, if I press a key or click the mouse my screen remains turned off - when FAH isn't running it turns the screen on again. With FAH running I have to power down the machine and restart it to be able to use it again. What can I do to prevent this from happening?

Is there anything in the logs that may indicate a driver crash? Do you know if FAH is running as is should, and successfully returning completed Work Units?
Check the Windows Event log too for errors regarding the display driver.

Welcome to Folding@Home!

If you could post the first 200 lines of the log in a Code block, we could see what you have configured and what is going wrong.

I had similar issues after PC standby and resume. In Windows power settings I had to disable pcie energy savings.
