I used to have a dell laptop with two monitors hooked up. I set the power save option to have the display turn off after 15 minutes. And that is what would happen, monitors would go black and stay that way until I moved the mouse or pressed a key on the keyboard. I.E worked as intended.
Now I just got an alienware laptop, have the two monitors hooked up to the laptop, have the same power save options set, but now when the display turns off, they both give a "no vga cable" on one of the monitors and "entering power save mode" on the other. The display never goes completely black, it just keeps displaying those messages.
I have downloaded and installed the most current display driver from the manufacturer for the monitors.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
