LCDHost preventing main display power off
« on: 2014-05-30 00:39:28 »
Since updating to Windows 8.1 a month or so ago, LCDHost (all versions I've tried) is preventing my monitors from powering down at the set interval.

I've tried disabling plugins, running power reports, etc, but nothing seems to help.

If I set the turn off screen setting to 1 minute with LCDHost not running, the screens turn off 1 minute later.  If LCDHost is running, the screens never turn off.

Any ideas?

hello
please do not repeat the question
I'm doing a test on the subject to which you refer.
i the settings to turn off the monitor work perfectly, running lcdhost.
check your settings in windows.

I have tried as you suggested uninstalling the 64-bit version and using the 32-bit version.  Same problem.

Set screensaver timeout to 1 minute.  After 1 minute, screensaver comes on.

Run LCDHost, screensaver never comes on anymore.

Right click LCDHost icon and click quit.  Exactly 1 minute later, screensaver kicks on as normal.

This is on a fresh installed Windows 8.1 64-bit with no other apps (except LGS) installed.

This is a fairly old problem (http://forum.linkdata.se/lcdhost-discussion/problem-lcdhost-and-screensaver-513.0.html). My screensaver still refuses to work (although it does work ONCE in a blue moon.... and only ONCE does it work and decide to enter screensaver mode).

If anyone has a solution to this problem, please let me know...

I'm running Windows 7 64bit, Alpha 37 32-bit.

forgive me if my explanation is not clear but I have to translate.
LCDhos the installation does not create any vercion screensaver.
if you mean pictures showing your design, then try the all are with where I think the design file.
everything has queir in the same folder.
if it refers to windows screensaver, right click the  screen and in the window that opens will ha personalize  , and there comes out the options to disable the screen saver.

I don't want to disable my screensaver, I want it to run while LCDHost is running. I'm having the exact issue that eoh7678 is having:

"Set screensaver timeout to 1 minute.  After 1 minute, screensaver comes on.

Run LCDHost, screensaver never comes on anymore.

Right click LCDHost icon and click quit.  Exactly 1 minute later, screensaver kicks on as normal."


Only in Windows 7 64bit, not 8.1 64bit.

It has been like this since at least version A25. I'm currently on 32-bit version of A37.

Do you know if your setup is the same.
But if loess follow these steps and try it.
1 Right click on the screen customization
2 Protective screen click.
3 Click to change power settings.
4 edit plan settings, open and select the des folding (never) in the two options. I give in (to save changes) if he does not keep the settings not wait.
5 click Change plan settings and (never) set what I show you in the picture.
When you miss these changes to try to change the screen saver
I can put an image capture how is your setup like this I show you.

Any update on this?

I'm having the exact same issue. Win 8.1 x64, no screensaver, display set to turn off after 10 minutes. If LCDHost is running, it never turns off.

Has anyone tried to see if this issue is solved with powercfg? http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/32947-power-availability-requests-manage-windows.html

I tried the 32bit version (installed then restarted pc) and still having the same issue.

Thanks, I didn't know this existed. Running 'powercfg -requests' shows None for everything, unfortunately, but something is still keeping my displays on.
