Acer al1914-monitor goes black

If I leave any program running and am not actually using my computer-mouse or keypad, my screen goes black after a few minuets (like its in sleep mode) . Display will not come back up by moving the mouse or typing enter on the keypad. I end up having to power off and then back up. And although this works I've lost whatever I was working on.Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance!!

Have you checked the settings in your screen-saver and power options in the display control panel?

    open Control panel > open display > click the screen saver tab on top > click the power button in the monitor power section

    In the power options properties under power schemes you can set the turn off monitor to whatever time allotment you wish , including never.

    You can also set the hard drive to shut down or not. And the system standby.

    Personally I set system standby to never and turn off hard disks to never because sometimes windows has issues in returning from standby. I set turn off monitor to 20 minutes, and it resumes by movement of the mouse or touching a key on the keyboard.


    Under the advanced tab there is a section labeled power buttons. If either of those is set to standby, that could be causing the problem.


    Under the Hibernation tab, you could select to enable hibernation, and while it will still act the same way it does now, but at least whatever you were working on will be there when it resumes... (The problem with that scenario is that windows has issues with resuming from hibernation with certain manufacturers products.)



    1 other thing to check... in your bios, check the ACPI or
    Advanced Configuration and Power Interface and disable any standby, doze, hibernate, suspend, or timeout options. Under ACPI or APM select user defined. This allows your OS to handle power management which handles device conflicts better than the bios.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

There is a long silver button with a black moon on the upper left of my keyboard. When I accidentally hit it, the screen goes black. What is it.....and how do you get your screen back?


Hi,
Depending on how your keyboard is configured, that key is set to do one of two things:
  1. Puts your computer to sleep. (A low power state where almost everything is shut off, including the monitor). You can resume from sleep by hitting any key on the keyboard, hitting the power button on your computer, or clicking the mouse.
  2. Puts your computer into hibernation. (An even lower power state where everything is actually shut off, but a copy of everything open is saved to the hard drive to be opened during start up. It basically allows you to turn off the computer, but be able to turn it back on with program exactly how you left it). You can resume from hibernation only by hitting the power button on your computer.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! You can leave a testimonial or contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

My Imac crashes. 10.6.4, 2 GB ram, 2 GHz core duo. I've started with a clean install and disabled (one by one) all start up apps. Out of the clear blue, the screen will go black & I have to turn it...


When you say "screen goes black," does the computer power down, or is it still operating? Does the sleep light come on? Does it respond to the keyboard and mouse? (Example: press the power button momentarily, wait a few seconds for the "Do you really want to shut down" message to appear, even though you can't see it, then hit the return key to answer "OK," and see if it shuts down.) Does the screen go black or come out of black if you tap the computer?
While your computer is working, go to System Preferences / Desktop & Screen Saver, the Screen Saver tab, click Hot Corners, and set a corner of your screen to Put Display to Sleep. Then next time your screen goes black, mouse your way into that corner, pause a few seconds, then mouse back out and see if your screen returns.

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.

  1. Press the [Access A] (key symbol) button on the top, right corner of the Control Panel.

    wcpro55-contl-pnl-access.jpg

  2. Enter the system password using the numeric keypad, then select [Enter] on the Touch Screen. The default password is 1111.

    NOTE: The default password is 1111. The password will be displayed as an asterisk (*). If you make a mistake, press the [Clear (C)] button and re-enter the password. To cancel the operation, select [Cancel]. If you are experiencing problems with your password or have forgotten your password, contact your administrator.

  3. If the Internal Auditron is not enabled, select the [Go To Tools] button (does not apply to copier-only models). If the Internal Auditron is enabled, select the [Tools Pathway] button.
  4. Select the [More] button.
  5. Select the [Power Saver Administration] button.
  6. Select the [Set Duration Times] button.
  7. To adjust the 'From Standby Mode to Low Power Mode' time-out, select that box so it turns black then enter a new time using the numeric keypad on the Control Panel. The Standby to Low Power may be set between 1 - 120 minutes.
  8. To adjust the 'From Low Power Mode to Sleep Mode' time-out, select that box so it turns black then enter a new time using the numeric keypad on the Control Panel. The Low Power to Sleep may be set between 0 - 120 minutes.

    NOTE: There should be a minimum of one minute between the 'From Standby Mode to Low Power Mode' and 'From Low Power Mode to Sleep Mode' settings. For example, if the 'From Standby Mode to Low Power Mode' is set to 10 minutes, then the 'Low Power Mode to Standby Mode' should at least be set to 11 minutes.

  9. Select the [Save] button.
  10. Select the [Exit Tools] button.
