Hmmm, sleep/suspend mode is only supposed to happen when it doesn't sense any movement from the mouse, it also shouldn't suspend if you are in full-screen either. So if you are playing a game that shouldn't happen at all... as a test you should put the "turn off the display" to "never" and see if it still happens.
I have this happen when watching Netflix, if I don't move the mouse my TV will go into suspend mode, even though I am in full screen... I think my issue however is related to the fact that I am using HDMI to connect to my TV from my computer... I have not solved this issue yet!

Start by checking ControlPanel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. Look for yellow marks that indicate devices not installed properly. This is usually a driver issue, and Dell should have given you a disk with the drivers you need.
Are you getting any error messages?

My Dell Inspiron notebook keep turning display off and then go to sleep later.


Go into the Windows Control panel, then to power settings. There you can adjust the settings for the monitor sleep behavior, as well as computer sleep and hibernation.

There are seperate settings for while plugged into power and while on battery.

If you have trouble, just let me know which operating system (XP, Vista, Win7, etc) you are running and I will give you step by step instructions.

Hope this helps you,

My Dell monitor goes to sleep right after windows xp starts to load and it won't come on after that. my computer is still running but the monitor is a sleep. I have hit f8 and f12 with nothing happening....


Go into safe mode
Under settings, control panel, power options set "turn off monitor to never
reboot

I think this is not a sleep problem but the incorrect monitor settings were set. This will cause the screen to go black when the OS comes up. Boot in safe mode and change the display settings
to 640x480
OR
in safe mode, delete your monitor. When you reboot it will load a default monitor and you should be OK

Monitor wont come out of sleep mode


One possiblility will be the failing power supply due to bad caps (leaking/bulging tops). You can take a look inside first before making the decison to buy a new one or not.

Monitor keeps going into sleep mode and it won't turn on so i can use it.


Monitors go to SLEEP mode when there is no computer signal coming into them. As soon as a computer signal reaches the monitor, it will automatically wake up and show the images in the screen.

Wont work with new computer


Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.
