Display Questions

Post by BobH »

My apologies for the spate of questions about my migration to a new laptop. I seem to have forgotten much of what I had learned; but, worse, I can't seem to form search arguments that return useful information.

I use my laptop basically as a base system with a large display connected via HDMI, a standard keyboard connected via USB, and a Bluetooth mouse. I was able to learn that there is a setting that allows me to close the lid on the laptop top running Windows 10 without shutting the system down. Now, I need to know how to allow my attached display to sleep after a period of non-use. I was able to do this on the old HP laptop, but I cannot find a setting that allows the display by itself to sleep using Windows 11.

Is this possible?

Again, apologies for being so needy.

3) The options in the left hand pane should help you

If you prefer using Settings go to Settings | System | Power and Battery | Screen and sleep.
