Could use more info. but, is it just going in to sleep mode ?..check your power settings under Display properties, Screen saver, Power.

Do you hear any Beep codes at startup ?. .does it shut off after maybe logging on to windows ?. . Check to see if the Fan runs, it may be over-heating and shuts down to prevent thermal damage to the CPU. if your fan is not running, DO not start it up till u replace the fan.

good luck,

    What do you mean Unplug and hold for 30 sec ? .. maybe the battery is fully dead. If you can log in then, check the sleep settings under Display properties, Screen saver, Power.

Screen seems to be not working properly

try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.

So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.
