    I am aware of that screen saver.
    When I use it, my monitors do go "black" but not 100% black.
    More like 98% black and all my "pixels" are "black" but they are sent red-green-blue data to EMIT a "black".
    Whereas using POWER SCHEME turns the monitor OFF, no red-green-blue black-emit but truly OFF.

    Just a guess, if monitor is off in power scheme, and you can wake it up (with e.g. mouse keyboard), that would mean windows needs to communicate with a hardware layer (as opposed to just a software layer with a screen saver). Perhaps that pipeline requires more resource activity. Again, a guess.

    But how to "resolve"?
    Is there a "polling rate" or Interrupt Request "rate" that can be changed?
