    Display PCs - Monitor feed is tuirning off.......

    We have finally got round to upgrading our display screens around the school that were left running Windows XP.
    They simply stay on during the day either running department powerpoints or camera feeds.

    Since we have updated to windows 7 after x amount of time the screen feed shuts off.
    They all have a GP setting them the Power settings to NEVER for all of the options. I have checked that these are also getting correctly applied.)

    BUT!!! they are still shutting off the monitor.
    Is there something that we are missing here please?

    Thanks in advance

    Power settings are disabled, but is screen saver?
    The screen will just blank out if Screensaver is enabled, but no actual screensaver is set, and looks the same as power saving.

    Thank for this. Screensaver was already disabled but led us to the problem!

    We had a GP set with loopback enabled to disable the screensaver in the user settings. We were using a local account this time so user settings weren't getting applied!
    Thanks again
