Bear sounds like might of set everything to never settings.
Go to device manager under control panel and it will be in the power options settings. I hope this is it.

Win 10 Bear yes.

Two things. Are you looking for monitor to go into sleep or your computer?

I’m off and can go to my computer in a moment.

Sleep

This uses very little power, your PC starts up faster, and you’re instantly back to where you left off. You don’t have to worry that you'll lose your work because of your battery draining, because Windows automatically saves all your work and turns off the PC if the battery is too low. Use sleep when you’re going to be away from your PC for just a little while—like when you’re taking a coffee break.

For a lot of PCs (especially laptops and tablets), your PC goes to sleep when you close your lid or press the power button.

To make your PC sleep:

Open power options:

For Windows 10, select Start , then select Settings  > System  > Power & sleep  > Additional power settings.

For Windows 8.1 / Windows RT 8.1, swipe in from the edge of the screen, tap Search (or if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search), enter Power options in the search box, and then tap or click Power options.

For Windows 7, click the Startbutton  Start button icon, click Control Panel, click System and Security, and then click Power Options.

Do one of the following:

If you’re using a desktop, tablet, or laptop, select Choose what the power buttons do. Next to When I press the power button, select Sleep, and then select Save changes.

If you’re using only a laptop, select Choose what closing the lid does. Next to When I close the lid, select Sleep, and then select Save changes.

When you’re ready to make your PC sleep, just press the power button on your desktop, tablet, or laptop, or close your laptop’s lid.

On most PCs, you can resume working by pressing your PC's power button. However, not all PCs are the same. You might be able to wake it by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.

Pretty straight forward on Win 10

Monitor sleep or

Computer sleep


Do you see the right column of screen

Other options?

You can Stop it, but it's a Windows update  service component. With it stopped you won't get windows updates. I wouldn't remove it.
What kind of problem is it causing? Is it waking your computer up from sleep mode?  I had that problem for a while, didn't really care and it went away with a recent update. 
 
 When I've had  problems with windows 10 I couldn't fix,  I've had good luck going to the microsoft  windows 10 help page and let their virtual help agent  run, then  ask to speak to a live person.  They have  microsoft techs that'll  log into your computer and  fix it.
  I tell them the problem has been happening since the last update and they say my warranty covers it so no charge. Don't know where the warranty came from, but as long as they say no charge, I've let them log in.  The downside is  that it takes about an hour altogether between the 10 minutes with the virtual help thing, then text chatting with the live tech,  then waiting for that tech to  fix it.       


At that awkward age where your brain has gone from " Probably shouldn't say that" to
"What the hell, let's see what happens"?  Me too.
