The only way i could get my monitor to come on was to kill the power to my system (shut down my power cord) then turn it back on. I had tried hitting ESC, and i tried turning the power off on my monitor and turning it back on, but it just said that monitor is going to sleep. No button i hit would wake it up. I checked all the connections and they were fine. This is the second time this has happened and i don't like killing the power like that. What should i do? Thank you.
Ok solution to everyone problem with this, I called HP down south and got someone who spoke great and clear english. I then explained that this was a hardware problem throughout this model. I managed to get another one seeing how this just so happen to be out of waranty, for 149.44 including taxes and shipping. I included that if she went online and saw how many people were having this she would understand more, and she did and for a 300 dollar monitor for 149.44

Hey there, Normally simply pressing a random key on your keyboard or moving your mouse should wake it up, if it doesn't though I think the easiest way to solve this is to simply turn off the sleep mode after x amount of time.
If you have windows 7, press the start button and type in "power options", go ahead and open power options and there you will be able to set the time it takes before your PC shuts down, and you can also set it to never.
If you still wish to use this feature but just want to be able to it's a bit tricky and it won't even work for all PCs but if the keyboard waking isn't working, then it's probably because your pc does have this feature. When your PC is off, boot it up again and enter the bios by pressing F10 i believe it is for HP.
And somewhere you should be able to set which devices are allowed to wake up your computer, all devices are probably disabled now, so go ahead and enable the keyboard to wake up your computer. Now save and exit, and the next time your PC goes to sleep mode you should be able to wake it up by pressing a key on your keyboard.
I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate this solution.
Check the cord and connections for the monitor; this has one wire that must have voltage on it or the monitor goes to sleep, and a broken wire or loose connection will fool it into thinking you are powering down. If this doesn't work try going into power options and setting monitor to never power down.
Does it do the same when you use this monitor with other PC, new VGA cable, just need to narrow down the problem first before start taking the monitor apart.
See pictures of what usually goes bad (mostly failed capacitors) with monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you find so we can guide you further
Try holding down the fn and f8 keys or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after
your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video
card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot
wake from sleep
If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.
If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.
Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.
Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.
