not knowing what operating system your are running i cannot navagate you there so go to control panel power options and hopefully you will see how to tell your computer when to sleep when to turn off hard drive and monitor etc so click on the when to sleep button and extend the time to what you think you may need and you can do the same for the hard drive because i think they are normally set to cut off after half and hour by default
Check your connections to the PC. Make sure that they are nice and secure. If there is a resolution problem setting it should display the boot process and then go blank after starting the operating system.
IT sounds like the monitor got fried.. sometimes if the monitor is in the on position as the power comes back, the monitor gets an unexpected sure which can sometime damage the circuitry. You may be out of luck. You're only other option is to try using the monitor on another computer to see if it's just a weird connection issue.
I have 2 acer AL2016W's and have the same problem. The earlier ones with the VGA only are the problem from what I can see, they just don't play nicely with the video card for some reason.
First, on your main monitor, click "Show displays in menu bar" on your monitor control panel. This will let you set the resolution for each monitor from the main one, click on the little monitor icon on the top right screen to do this.
If that doesn't work try this:
Connect one acer as the main monitor and one crappy vga crt monitor as the second.
Set mirrored desktop in the system preferences so that the crappy CRT is displaying the exact same resolution as the acer. (1680x1050 59.9Hz)
Disable mirrored desktop. You should now have an acer and a crappy CRT both running 1680x1050 in extended desktop mode.
Shut down, reconnect the acer in place of the crappy CRT.
This should "trick" your video card into having the right resolution, otherwise you'll just get the stupid "input not supported" screen, with no ability to auto configure or use any of the built in controls.
