    If you've absolutely sure that you've set the power management correctly in windows



    BIOS could still be shutting your monitor down , which you already know that your windows settings

    are not getting the job done.



    so you will need to tell me the specific brand of computer you have , and the model number



    some examples of brand name and model number



    Asus AN7V

    Compaq Semperon 3000+

    Dell Dimension XP 1700

    Gateway Pentium 4

    HP 9000



    Once you we have that information , or you have it , either one of us can look up the bios information

    on the internet and get a detailed description of the bios and it's power management settings.



    sometimes we need to be shown things , you seem like a very intelligent person who can do this.





    I'll help you every way I can.

Seems like the PC has Hibernation mode turned on. After 1 hour windows will put the PC and hardrives to sleep to conserve power. If you want to disable it, here how:
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Power Options icon.
  3. Within the Power Options Properties window, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. Uncheck the "Enable hibernation" checkbox to disable the feature, or check the box to enable it. This window also displays the total space required for hibernation.

You might have put the computer into hibernate; have you tried pressing the power button? It should wake the computer up if it is asleep or hibernating. It is also possible that your monitor cable is unplugged.

Have you gone into the BIOS to make sure there aren't any power managment features? Do you get the same thing happening if plugged into a different wall socket? Sometimes bad power surges can cause this problem. Other issues have been known to arise from motherboard problems. Or NIC power settings...strangely enough...a quick way to test if it's NIC related might be too unplug any cables from the NIC to see if it stays on or not? There are power settings on NICs in advanced settings. Let me know if any of that helps and remember to rate the solutions. Thanks!

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.


Hey,

I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?

if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.

Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.

Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.

how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.

look around the bios and poweroptions.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Your computer is in hibernate mode.

Start up your computer and do this

Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options

Select the tab "Hiberbate" >> Uncheck hibernate mode

Also you can adjust there your power setting and monitor settings
