The XP power management is set to turn the monitor off after 20 minutes of inactivity. Everything else is set to stay on. For the past month, after no activity for 3 or more hours, it takes the monitor over a minute to bring up the picture. Does anyone have any suggestion on what could be causing the? I checked the system power supply and it is working properly. Is this a sign that my monitor is starting to fell?

Actually during start-up there is a slight delay before the HDD & OS is detected by the CPU. Normally all monitors slip into power saving mode within 10 secs of inactivity of either mouse or keystroke. This inactivity is read by the monitor which promptly switches to power saving mode. However the moment the HDD LED starts blinking, the monitor wakes up & starts displaying. This power saving mode in most of the flat screens is only associated with movement of mouse or keypad. This does not register till the CPU starts up & thats why the monitor switches over to power saving mode till it starts receiving signal from the CPU. It is a normal behaveour, so don't get worked up over it, plus you can always hit the Auto set feature on the monitor after booting the PC completely. ( I think the time out for the monitor to enter power saving mode is only 10 secs). Hope this helps.
turn off the computer's power management, there is an issue with the video card/OS and your power management. Set the power management scheme for the monitor to always on, or disable power management in the BIOS of the computer.
I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.
Take a look at your power saving settings. It sounds like the monitor is set to sleep after 20 or 30 minutes. You may want to change your setting to "never". The settings are under Control Panel - Power management
This is most likely due to power management settings for the monitor.
To address these settings follow the procedure below for your version of Windows.
To establish which version of Windows you have: Press and hold the Windows Logo Key on your Keyboard + Press Pause Break Key and release.
To adjust power management settings in XP: Click Start > Control Panel > Power Options > Adjust the drop-down menu for your Monitor.
To adjust power management settings for Vista: Click Start > Control Panel > Classic View > Power Options > Click "Change Plan Settings under your current plan (the plan with a filled bullet) > Click "Advanced Settings" > Click Display > Click "Turn off display after" Select 0 for none or choose the duration of inactivity to wait before Windows blanks your screen.
SleepSleep is a mode that the computer enters after being inactive for a set amount of time. Commonly, this mode will turn off a device or set it into a stand-by
