That's by design. The game tells the operating system "don't go into sleep/low power mode - I'm a game and am actively using the CPU/graphics card".

If you want your computer to go into sleep mode, exit the game first.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

in single player, it should be possible to let the monitor turn off, for me for an example i left the game running, minimized for the night.

I didnt think of looking back and the screens was left ON for the night, now if i ever do that i need to manually turn off the monitor

As you should anyway. You left a game running.
