I have a simple OS/monitor off in a command and a while back it stopped working out of the blue.

When ever I execute it the monitor powers off but then the monitor is immediately powered on....

Can't figure this one out...

Eh, an eventstring/remote key that triggers the OS/Monitor off action...

the os might be interpreting the event as a keypress or mouse move and turning the monitor on again. what IR receiver or device?

thats likely it depending on the key you are using. that remote simulates key presses

I'm using the TV key on those MCE remotes.

The things is it worked without problems before... The only thing out of the ordinary I did recently was mess around with Windows' power settings, but I left them the way they were originally. I can't figure it out really.
