There can be conflicts if you use both BIOS power management and windows power management at the same time. I will use the BIOS management over windows every time. I just make sure it is turned on in the bios to shut the monitor off after a period of time and then i will go into the windows management and set everything to NONE. There is usually a place in the BIOS to set power management.
