Video Power Down Mode

If present, this setting controls the method used to put the monitor into low-power mode. The typical options for this setting are:

  • DPMS: Select this option if your monitor supports the DPMS standard for monitor power management. This is the preferred and usual default setting; most modern monitors do support DPMS.
  • V/H Sync+Blank: Selecting this option causes the video card to shut down the vertical and horizontal sync signals to the monitor, as well as sending blank data to the monitor.
  • Blank Screen: This option causes the monitor to be blanked only.
