I usually put my computer to sleep when I go to bed. For the past week or so when I start my computer in the morning, the monitor has had a hard time starting up. The green light lights up but then the monitor clicks for a few minutes and goes between the green light and the orange light. Once the screen is up it's fine and if I put the computer to sleep and immediately start it up again the monitor screen comes right up. So this only seems to happen when the monitor has not been in use for several hours.

Make sure the data plug is in correctly. Turn the computer on. No you can try using the power button on the monitor to power it off and on. Or you may need to pull the power for the monitor out of the plug and then put it back in.
The blinking light means the monitor is in sleep mode. They need activity on the data or signal cable before they wake up. Unfortunately sometimes they get stuck and you have to reboot them to wake them up. I have seen a few where they had failed and would not come out of sleep mode but that is pretty rare. Usually you just have to sweet talk it and threaten it a bit and pull it plug a few times and all of a sudden it will start up,
Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!
Check your power options in your control panel - default is usually 20 minutes to put monitor to sleep - you can adjust the time there. The monitor itself does not usually have this as a function so I would start there first.
most times this is indicator of a video card problem, most times you try booting in to vga mode and see does it go to sleep. if it does not go to sleap you video driver is bad and needs to be reinstalled. if it does go to sleep it is usually video card issue. to boot in to vga mode turn ur pc off and once u press on to put it back on start pressing button F8 and advanced menu will come up and you have to choose boot in to vga mode. if this does not work same way go to safe mode with networking and reinstall video driver by going in to device manager.
start button >settings >control panel > Power Option > set time for monitor to sleep if inactive...if you dont want the computer to sleep go up to the hibernate tab and uncheck it. If you want the computer to stay on regardless, move all drop down menus to "never" instead of a time.
This is probably a video setting issue. In Safe Mode, Windows starts with low resolution and color settings, so the monitor can display them. But when it tries to start normally, Windows is using a video setting the monitor can't handle.
Start the computer and press the F8 key three or four times when the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This should get you to the Windows startup menu screen, and you can pick the option of starting in VGA mode. This will start Windows with video settings any monitor can handle.
Once you have Windows up and running, make sure the video card and monitor types are properly set up. It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your video card. You can usually find them at the manufacturer's website.
I have called HP Technical Support 6 times about this issue and have logged at least 14 hours into the issue. The things they have done are turn all sleep settings in the "Power Options" in the control panel to "never". The problem persisted. Today, they sent my problem to the complaints department, so maybe they will have the authority to do something for my 5 week old setup.
For me, the monitor was in the "other devices" part on the device manager (go to start menu and type device, and the device manager will show up). I went to HP's website to the support and drivers spot and found a patch for the My Display program. This will allow you to uninstall your monitor, just right click the monitor under "other devices" and click uninstall. After you uninstall, restart and your computer will recognize the and put it under "monitors" in the device manager with the updated drivers. After I did this, the monitor hasn't gone to sleep.
Just to check, do you have any power settings enabled? If you right click the desktop and go to properties, then screensaver, then power settings, look for hibernation and options to turn off the monitor after a certain amount of time. Maybe one of these settings got checked.
