    While in use, the screen blacks out and the "acer" screen saver comes on. The power indicator stays green, so I know it's still connected to the computer ok. After clicking the mouse a few times, it goes away, and I can use it again.

That problem could emanate from either the video card or on-board video circuit. The best way to separate the two possibilities is by substitution; connect your monitor to another PC and a borrowed monitor you your PC.
If you can swap with a friend for a few hours, have either monitor connected to a PC that is turned off, then turn on the monitor(s) first, start the PC.  This should force Windows to 'find' the different monitor and install the appropriate driver.
When swapping back, you will need to do that again to restore the PCs to their original settings/drivers.
The problem is most likely the monitor and it sounds like a main power supply in the monitor is headed toward failure, probably due to one or more failed electrolytic capacitors like so many others in recent times.

Power board is starting to have capacitors fail. They will get worse !
If it were a computer signal issue your power light color would change or you would get a no signal note.
A year ! yep about that time for an overhaul based on the parts they used.

Blackout Mode On and Off

When the Blackout mode is turned on, the display will

turn off to reduce power consumption.

This additional power enhances the sound quality.

1 Press and hold the B.OUT button for at least 3

seconds to start the blackout mode. By doing so the

display will turn off.

NOTE

If any button on the unit is pressed during the blackout mode, the

function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation

before returning to Blackout mode.

To cancel the blackout mode, press and hold the
B.OUT button for at least 3 seconds.

go to acer website and download driver for monitor or graphics monitor. Make sure you download AL 1916W and NOT AL1916. Make sure after, you set your resolution to 1440 x 900. That should do the trick.

It proably has dying DC filter caps.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Blackout Display Mode: When the Blackout mode is activated, the display turns off to reduce power consumption. The additional power made available by turning off the display helps enhance sound quality. If a button is pressed during the Blackout mode, the display will illuminate for 5 seconds before blacking out again. Blackout Mode On and Off (CDA-9855 only) When Blackout mode is turned on, the display will turn off to reduce power consumption. This additional power enhances the sound quality. Press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds to activate the blackout mode. The display will turn off. If any button on the unit is pressed during the blackout mode, the function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before returning to Blackout mode. To cancel Blackout mode, press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds.
