Question When my VG248QE is not in use, why does it flash 'display port no signal'??

I have two monitors, one of them being a VG248QE. When I watch movies, I like to use 'second screen only', thus leaving my primary monitor(the VG248QE) off. But it doesn't stay off. It will flash "Display port NO SIGNAL" repeatedly, though inconsistently. I have an MSI 1660 ti; driver is up to date. I tried pulling the power cord then plugging back in, but it did not work. All connection seem tight. Help!

My guess is with the monitor still powered on, it senses it doesn't have a signal while still being connected. Not sure why it wouldn't stay off when powered off though. My just have to manually power it down.
