Monitor won't sleep during full system scan

Hi guys

Running latest version of Norton Security. I always set my monitor to go to sleep after 10 minutes, but when running a full system scan in Norton Security, the screen remains on.

Is there a setting somewhere where the monitor will sleep during full system scan?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Monitor won't sleep during full system scan

The monitor sleep settings kick in when your system is idle. If Norton is doing a full system scan, the system is no longer idle. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

In addition to what peterweb has said, you might need a working monitor to advise you if/when Norton finds a problem !

The reason I asked is because previously the monitor went to sleep during full system scan. (might have been another version of a Norton AV product).

Re: Monitor won't sleep during full system scan

All: On my laptop, I went into Windows 10 settings, under system>power and sleep. Set the "screen timeout" setting to 5 minutes. Went to the desktop, opened the Norton dashboard and started a full system scan. After 5 minutes the screen timed out, went black and Norton continued its full scan. FWIW!!
