Re: hp vs17e monitor says it's in sleep mode then goes...
Check the board postings for the HP f1903 monitor.I recall seeing a problem of the same there and a solution or fix. As it is only a newer version of the same model, it may be the same fix. Appears HP has a big problem with QA and this particular model. Lots of people have same or similar problems, and all appear to have a similar fix or solution. Tricky part... figuring out how to "Open" the monitor to check it inside!
PS - if you figure out the opening part, let us all know!

gldngrlz411, most likely problem with internal "switch-mode-power-supply" / CCFL inverter supply that provides 600 to 1000 volts ac to light the CCFL tubes that provide "white light" so you can see what is on the glass LCD panel!! Explore here first: http://www/lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ If vs17e does same when connected to a different "known good" pc, then you will need to make big decision!!! FIX or Trade in for new wide screen unit. 12fixlouie
If this monitor (HP w1907) is going into sleep mode the normally blue power led will change to yellow. This indicates loss of video signal or possible out of range resolution. If the picture goes dark and the power lite stays blue, you have a backlight malfunction. It can be an inverter power fault but this model mostly has worn out backlights causing a shutdown condition.

it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.
although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode
some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card
It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.
Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
Have you enabled the secondary video from your laptop?
Normally it's a combination of Function and one of the function keys (will have a picture of 2 monitors)
Press them together and see if the second screen lights up.
