After sitting idly, the monitor naturally shuts down. Usually the movement of the mouse is enough to power it back up...lately it's not. Sometimes a "no signal" message flashes for a second but it doesn't come on. About a half hour or so later, the monitor comes back up by itself.Also, sometimes when I'm on the computer, the monitor just goes black. It'll flicker a bit like there's a loose connection and come back eventually not losing the page I was on. I've checked the connections and they are fine. HELP!Thanks, Mark

go in to monitor in the control panel and set the sleep mode time mode
probably better if you go into bios setting and click on computer start from any key movement
that way the monitor and computer go into sleep mode and that saves money on power and you only have to move the mouse or press a key and 10 seconds later the screen is awake and the computer is operational
I am typing this looking at an aoc monitor attached to a pc ;
What is shutting down, the monitor or the computer. Check the power light on each for proper diagnosis. You either have a bad monitor, a bad video display card or a bad PC, specifically a power supply or motherboard. This is a classic symptom of something getting too hot and shutting down. One way to test the monitor is to plug it into something else for an a period of time and test. If you're PC is shutting off, try unplugging unnecessary peripherals, i.e. CD/DVD drives, floppy drives, external USB peripherals, etc. Start with just the video adapter, keyboard, mouse and monitor. Let us know what is shutting off, for further diagnosis.
Hello sir, I have samsung 22in lcd monitor and nvidea fx5500 card. since last more than 6 months, my monitor goes blank If system remains idle (means I don't move mouse and don't touch keyboard) for 1 minute. After monitor goes blank I have to move mouse to brink it back to on. The power led keep on during this problem. I tried everything including power options in windows but could not fix it. Is it bios setting to be checked or could it be windows bug? Please help
Try using the power button, which usually takes the computer out of hibernation. Also, the mouse and keyboard can sometimes wake the computer from hibernation as well.
If the computer is still stuck in a hibernated state, hold the power button in for about 5 seconds so the computer fully shuts down and power it back on.
usually shut down when idle(idle means no key or mouse activity).........left click mouse in any space on desktop,select properties,in properties window select screensaver and lower in the screen youll see power settings..select it...in power schemes change time best suited or select never.
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.
