Question about Computers & Internet
I usually just shut it down, but this time I put it to sleep and it keeps giving me the error code no VGI signal, monitor is going to sleep. I have checked all the connections, everything seems to be in order. Don't know what the problem is. I never put my computers to sleep. What can I do to resolve this.
You need to adjust you power management setting under control panel
go to control panel, power option, on the left hand side select "change when computer sleeps"

It sounds like your computer has been having some trouble for some time. My hunch is that there is nothing wrong with the monitor at all.
Usually, when you see this warning on the screen that there is no signal, the monitor is trying to tell you that it cannot talk to the computer. This means the computer either a.) will not boot or b.) your video card in the computer has stopped working.
Does your computer make all the usual noises when you start it up? Can you hear the hard drive clicking and the fans come on?
Have you reseated the video connection on the back of the tower?
My guess is that something was going out before and it is now gone. The first place I would look to diagnose this problem is the hard drive.
Hard drives fade to fail sometimes, and when they are fading, the entire computer becomes painfully slow.
Hope this helps

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S, and it exhibited the same symptoms as rguggemos's & Wilburollie's.
I can put it to sleep, but when I try to wake it, it won't. The screen will stay black. I can hear the drives spin up, and the fans go on FULL blast, and the blue power LED stays flashing, but the computer will stay like that - no picture or anything. Then I'd have to press & hold the power button to force it off, then power back on. Not ideal.
The solution that worked for me?! On boot, at the "DELL" logo, hit F2 to enter the BIOS setup, go to Power Management, and change the standby mode from S3 to S1. The difference? S3 is a "deeper" sleep, w/ more components powered off, which is better, energy-wise, but it is more difficult to wake from. S1 is a "light" sleep. Give it a shot! Maybe it'll work!
Stolen from another forum:
S0 (Working) is lit. The CPU functions in entirety; the conservation of power is on a basis of by-device.
S1 (Sleep). The CPU is stopped; The RAM is regenerated; the system functions in reduced power.
S2 (Sleep 2) The CPU does not have any power; The RAM is regenerated; the system is in lower mode of the S1.
S3 (Standby) The CPU does not have any power; The RAM regenerates at minimum; the power supply unit is in mode of reduced power. This mode is also called “Save to RAM”.
S4 (Hibernate). All is powered off, but the memory was saved like temporary file on the hard drive. This mode is called “Save to disk”.
S5 (Off) Everything is shutdown. Means you need a full reboot.

Plug the monitor into another computer to determine if the monitor is damaged or working properly. You can also plug another monitor into your computer to determine the same thing.

Check if you VGA is properly settled in the PCI slot. Try to take it out, clean the slot for dust.
If that doesn't help, it is well possible that you VGA is not working any more.
