Check the settings for 'Power Options' in your control panel; it may be set up to 'sleep' after some short period.
- Open the 'Start' menu - Select 'Control Panel' - Open the 'Power Options' folder to check or change settings.
CRT monitors could develop 'burn-in' and having them go inactive after a period on non-use made sense to avoid damaging the phosphor but LCD monitors don't suffer from that so the feature isn't as useful as it once was.

Go into Control Panel, then to Power Options.
In XP, you see a selection for Turn Off Monitor. Adjust that setting as desired.
In Vista, you'll see Choose when to turn off display on the left side. Choose that option and select the desired time setting to turn the display off.

SOURCE: My monitor goes to sleep all the time, not

trevor_jody, I hope you have valid HP warranty! If not , then you will need to do some reading at this blog: The cheapest way to fix is DIY. But you and only you can determine if you are able to do the required work necessary to refurbish the unit. Swap-in a good unit to use while you are researching the common fixes for your 2338h unit. Your unit still works!!! Just not long enough! Your goal is to make it work for 20 million seconds. Try these other web sites also. (site run by "buddymc") and , Next thing to do will be to understand the "flashlight test" to determine state of your monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply". Is it in full or partial shutdown mode when screen goes BLACK or BLANK and BLACK? If you can still see Win-desktop after screen goes black, then SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. Blank n black=full shutdown. Do some reading in my and "buddymc" and "budmrtn" fixya profiles by typing our fixya "nicknames" into the "search for solutions or.... " bar at top of fixya screen and then hit enter or click search button. You will also find DIY video clips at YOUTUBE that will also be of some use too!! All that we ask you to do after doing your research is to come back to fixya and tell us if we were of some help and that you have learned something about how your monitor functions and if you have been able to make the decision to DIY or contract out the work needed to restore your unit to like-new condition. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

I have a HP vs17 monitor that keeps going to sleep. It will flash to windows when I first start and immediately goes into sleep mode. When this first happened, I had managed to make sure any sleep modes,...

trixieb1, It's NOT going to sleep mode. Use warranty if possible!! If that not option you will need to read about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and the voltage inverters that power them. Learn to do flashlight test when screen goes to black or blank n black!!! Read my fixya profile and those of other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians. We already know what is wrong with your unit. And It is a VERY big problem for all LCD monitor manufacturers. Just do some reading before you do anything else. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

My HPw1707 monitor keeps going to sleep and I have to turn off the computer to get the programs to open when I want to work on anything.

Are you saying that the monitor is going to sleep or the computer? If the computer goes to sleep I can understand not being able to get to your programs. This is a simple matter of turning off hybirnate in the power supply icon of your control panel. If the monitor is going to sleep there should be a menu with a timer for sleep time. Just change it to a much longer time or turn it off.

Monitor says it is going to sleep and there is only a black screen.

Monitors go to sleep when there is no computer activity it detected. Also, when your OS is working and somehow you have set a "sleep" time, then the monitor goes to sleep at the appointed time. Just press ENTER or press the POWER BUTTON to bring it back to life without losing your computer work.

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.
