It was my USB keyboard and mouse combo that was preventing my monitor from sleeping. I have a wired corsair rgb keyboard and mouse as well as a ergonomic USB Microsoft keyboard and mouse that I use for coding. Once I unplugged the USB receiver the monitor was able to turn off via the power and sleep settings. Hope this helps.
