The screen display means that there is no video signal.

Try the monitor on another PC to see if it shuts off there.

If it still does not shut off, the power control circuitry inside the monitor has failed.

Unless this is a large (19"+) monitor, it will be cheaper to get a new monitor than to have this one repaired.

If the monitor does shut down on another PC, then there is a problem with your video card.

Could be time for a video card upgrade.

Another way is to turn off the monitor if you are not worried about the fact that it does not go into power down, thus saving the cost of a new monitor.
