Lenovo monitors are known to be very reliable and work as intended, but some of them sometimes act up. The whole thing can be frustrating if you cannot resolve the issue.
Recently, one of my friends shared what he was experiencing with his Lenovo monitor. His Lenovo Monitor keeps going into power saving mode repeatedly. But, performing a hard reboot resolved the issue.
Is your Lenovo monitor behaving the same?
If so, try what he did, and if that fails to resolve the issue, then try what we’ve instructed in this post.
But first, let’s find out what causes creating this problem.
- CPU overheating.
- Faulty/loose cables.
- Due to dust in the monitor.
- If the monitor is too old.
- When the CPU fan is running slow.
These are the reasons that can be the reason why your Lenovo monitor keeps going into power saving mode.
How do I get my Lenovo monitor out of standby mode?
Whenever there is no activity on the monitor for a certain amount of time, Lenovo monitors enter Sleep mode. To get out of Lenovo monitor power saving mode, simply press any key on your keyboard. If that doesn’t work, you can try following the steps we instructed in this post.
Turn off and unplug the monitor.
Many Lenovo users usually apply the very first method, and you should also try this trick first. Here’s what you need to do;
- Turn off the Monitor.
- Unplug the cables of the computer.
- Wait for 30 seconds.
- Plug in the cables back.
- Turn on the computer.
Does doing this work for you? If not, move on to the following methods.
Change Power saving mode
Changing the power savings mode might fix the standby mode or if the screensaver is set. Here is how to initiate it.
- Go to Settings > System > Power & battery. For the power mode, choose the one you want.
If you can’t change the power mode in the power & battery option.
- Go to the Control panel.
- Select System and security.
- Now select the Power option.
Note: You won’t be able to change the power mode if you have already selected a custom power plan.
Change Power plan settings
Here’s how you can change the Power Plan Settings;
- Press the Win+X keys together.
- Now, select Power Options.
- Then, click on the Additional power settings > Change plan settings.
- Select the On Battery and Plugged in options and set both options to Never.
- After that, put your desktop to sleep and wait for 5 seconds.
- At last, press any key and check if the issue persists.
Change System attended sleep timeout
You can also try changing the System attended sleep timeout. To do so;

- After that, select Power Options > Additional power settings > Expand Sleep > System unattended sleep timeout.
- And then set it to 30 minutes or longer.
Check if connection is loose
Next, you need to check the condition and connections of all your cable attached to your monitor and commuter.
Check if any of the cables are loose, torn, or damaged. If you found any of the issues, then the below steps will help you;
- Check cables are tightly connected with the computer and monitor.
- Check that you connected your cables to a workable port in the CPU.
- If any cables are damaged, frayed, or torn, replace them with a new ones.
Clean computer system fan
When a lot of dust accumulates on the computer fan, it decreases the computer’s performance and leads the computer to the power saving mode.
You can clean your computer fan with compressed air, an electronic vacuum, or a clean damp cloth.
Steps to clean computer fan
- Once you have decided how to clean your computer fan, open the computer case and locate the fan you want to clean.
- In most cases, you will need to remove the fan so that both sides of the fan can be cleaned.
- If the fan is connected to the CPU sink, remove it to clean the dust.
Turn off screensaver
Some users use screensavers to see their favorite photos on the screen when they are away. But sometimes, this feature may lead you to some problems. So, try disabling it.
- Press Windows + R key together.
- In the search bar, type Lock Screen settings.
- Select Screen saver Settings.
- Choose None.
Fix BIOS problem
BIOS issue is not a common problem; this problem usually happens if you recently updated your BIOS or if you had changed some settings in it. To fix the BIOS issue, follow the panned down steps.
- Press the F8 key on your keyboard after booting up the computer.
- You will get a boot list on your computer.
- Select Safe Mode and go to Display Settings.
- Now, select Hibernation Off and click on Apply.

- Boot up the computer again and check if the issue persists.
Contact Lenovo customer service.
If the methods we’ve instructed above fail to help you out and the problem persists, then probably there would be some problem in the internal hardware of your Lenovo monitor, which a professional technician can only fix.
Try contacting Lenovo customer service and ask them to provide you with a resolution to fix the issue.
