My monitor won't come out of sleep mode

when the computer enter the sleep mode, it is possible that the computer remove the check mark from this output activation.

When you have multiple ouptut like a internal LCD and output on a monitor, when going into sleep then waked up, laptop reactivate the internal LCD without reactivated the secondary monitor.

you could need to go in desktop property and reactivate the secondary monitor with the check mark listed : Activate.

If you only have one monitor but still a dual output card or two separate video card same thing can happend. try to connect the monitor on the second VGA or HDMI output and see if the video goes there.

then reactivate your secondary output and make it principal.

Does also happend when your computer is connected to a UPS power and your monitor is directly on the sector. (laptop issu also)

if a brief power outage arrive then the monitor shut down (no power) and the computer continu, as there is no monitor on the output any more Windows will automatically deactivate this monitor. when power goes back, this output is no longuer providing video. I suggest putting the monitor on a UPS as well.

My old (vintage 2000) CRT monitor (Dell) occasionally goes into sleep mode and nothing I do will "wake it up".

You could try turning it off and back on again when it does that, or pressing a few of the buttons on it.

If you would like to prevent it from going into sleep in the first place, you could try changing the settings in the control panel, turning off the monitor before you leave (to prevent it having a chance to go to sleep mode), or just shut down your whole computer before you leave. That is probably the best option, because it is a lot healthier for your computer to just have your computer shut off instead of leaving it on all the time. It may also save some money on your power bill, depending on how many things you have with it and how much power it actually uses.

Monitor going right to sleep mode on start up

Sounds like a bad graphics card. Try using monitor wit another computer and see if the problem still exists. This rules out the display.

If your laptop won't respond to the wake up keypress you can hold the power button down for five seconds and your laptop will shut down. Then you can reboot it. You might want to go to the screen saver power options and prevent it from going to sleep if the problem persists.

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.

SVA Monitor stuck in Analog Mode or Sleep Mode

Actually it was quite easy. I rebooted my computer in "safe mode" by restarting it and pressing the F8 key. At the start up windows gives you an option to toggle down to "enable VGA mode" and select it. After that, my computer recognized my monitor and it has worked fine ever since!

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up

Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.
