In some situations, especially for users with DisplayPort and HDMI cables, Windows may detect that your monitor is powered off, causing the GPU to go to sleep. As such, we don't recommend turning off your monitor. Please see -> https://superuser.com/questions/630555/turning-displayport-monitor-off-disables-monitor-completely for more information. Another option is to buy a HDMI dummy plug keep the GPU from going into sleep.
