Question about Computer Monitors

When the computer is turned on the monitor goes to sleep mode

I have a computer that has been sitting for about a year (it was working fine when put in the closet) I am now trying to hook it up for my daughter and when i turn it on (it sounds like all is working fans, power, ect) it put the monitor into sleep mode. I have tried two different monitors and it does it to both.... I have tried turning it on and then doing the safe mode thing but the monitor screen is black so i can see anything to see if it is working...... HELP PLEASE ....

    Like I said in my question I tried the safe mode thing but the screen is black and in sleep mode and I can see anything to change anything. I have tried this on more than one monitor so I know it's not the monitor.

Go to safe mode,select boot in vga mode.

If this allows you to start,

Click start,Run type desk.cpl
Screen Saver tab | click on Energy
Under desk or office settings frame, set all values to "never".
Then click
Advanced Options, you'll see a frame asking you what to do.
Just select the options to turn off sleep mode.
check that out.

If you can't start this way,you need to try another monitor to change the setting above.


Please rate this a fixya

    Only thing that i can think of until you can get it up and running is to try a new video card. There really is no other option out there sorry

I have my acer p205h 20 inch monitor hooked up to my tobshiba laptop and it works great except it will not go into sleep mode when laptop goes into sleep mode the monitor goes to there is not signal check...


Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

Monitor works fine until the sleep mode and then it goes blank. I have to unplug the power button and it does work again


It seems it is a motherboard battery problem. It most likely is not the monitor which is in "sleep mode", it is the computer itself.

When you cannot get a computer out of "sleep mode" by any other means, typically the cause is that the button-cell-type battery of your computer, which is located on the motherboard, is empty. When your computer detects this battery is empty, it goes into a low-power mode. The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer

Lg flatron w1952tq goes into power saving mode on boot computer works fine on other monitor. Running Kubuntu linux.


your LG monitor is bad then if you put another monitor on the computer and your getting video. Just as a last resort, you might want to put the LG monitor on another computer and if it stays in sleep mode then you know for sure at that point, the monitor is bad.

Monitor TFT 5015 now says "going to sleep


Make sure the laptop's external VGA port is turned on. There will be a function key somewhere on the keyboard (location varies by manufacturer and model) that controls the connector. If the connector has gotten turned off the external monitor will go to sleep because it's not getting any input.

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep


Hi publicworker,

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
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.
