As soon as I launch a game (typically GPU demanding titles), my monitor goes to sleep immediately. I am unable to get it to wake up without a reboot, or sometimes by closing out the game (which can be difficult when you can't see!). I also was able to get it to wake by using remote desktop on my phone and alt-tabbing to desktop, then launching an app called ScreenOff which is supposed to put your screen to sleep. This app never works for me beyond getting the monitor to sleep for 1 second, then it pops back on. It popped back on this time too... :/

Any ideas on how to get my monitor to stay awake? Why is this happening? I have the latest Nvidia driver and some of the games in question are Borderlands 3, Gears 5, Star Wars Battlefront II, Sea of Thieves. I have played other games that do NOT cause this, and it's intermittent even with the games listed (except Battlefront II I believe shuts it down every time).

Help!!
