Saving Power with Standby Mode

Case A

To use the power-saving function of your PC, set STANDBY in the main menu to DPMS. The monitor then enters standby mode by receiving signals from your PC.

Case B

If there is no power-saving function in your computer, you can set the time before the monitor enters standby mode with the STANDBY parameter in the setup main menu. You must connect the keyboard, mouse, and the optional keyboard/mouse cable (P/N:83H7859) to the connectors at the rear of the monitor.

The following table shows the power dissipation and the state of indicators when the monitor is in standby mode:

  1.  When the monitor status changes from standby mode to normal operation, the standby indicator blinks.
  2.  For the time in case A, see the manuals of your computer.  In case B, the monitor automatically enters power-off mode if there is no input for 10 minutes after entering standby mode.
