When it was first installed“, much about it seemed new and different (it took a while to understand that my exotic file password had to be The password, and still more time to convince myself to trust this); so if I did not let the monitor go idle during that time, then I was likely mistaken about that piece of history.

In any case there is an alternative:  Make “Auto Sign-out at Screen Idle” optional, Enabled by default for those who leave their hardware unattended and their doors unlocked.

FWIW:  People who are environmentally responsible and/or unwealthy are more inclined to try to save power and extend monitor life.  It is for both of those reasons that my monitor goes dark after 5 minutes’ idle.
