My monitor suddenly stopped working when I moved the computer. It keeps giving me a prompt that the monitor is going to sleep. I checked the connections and all is fine...also the display comes on for a second and says no input and then goes to sleep. Is there a way to manually re-set the monitor.

First make sure all the cables are securely plugged in. By randomly, do you mean a set amount of time of inactivity? Try this. If that doesn't work, it may be time to replace your graphics card (or buy one) or time to buy a new monitor. Good luck.
I stoped the monitor from sleeping by going into the montitor's menu, management, then sleep. Turn on the never allow to sleep mode. We were having some of your mentioned issues with the icons and with the monitor not waking up. This fixed that. Now the computer will go to sleep and when started the monitor comes on instantly.
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.
It is probably going to sleep because it's not getting any keyboard input. You'll need to go to the control panel and the power options and tell it not to go to sleep or at least increase the time that it will remain idle before going to sleep.
Watching movies is not input, so it thinks you are not using it.
I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.
How to do that:
right mouse click on the desktop
select graphic options
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.
