I would first verify your system power settings (in Windows XP go to control panel, power options, then verify that nothing is set that could activate your monitor to a standby mode) - other versions of windows have something very similar. If all of these settings are correct, then unless the monitor is not working as required when switched on, i would recommend just leaving it be, possibly just take the time to unplug the monitor power lead instead of just switching it off. If however you feel you must fix this problem, try: for this model of monitor you will need the serial or FRU number in order to define the exact model.

Hi Babu

Check all the solder terminals at the CRT base card. If any of it get loose at the solder terminals, this kind of fault can happen. It is very difficult to detect a dry solder terminal, as it will be microscopically small. can\'t be seen by naked eye. To this type of fault, what we technicians do is, to resolder all the suspected solder terminals. In 90% of this kind of faults, get rectified by this. You too can try this. Be sure not to short circuit adjacent solder terminals to make a short circuit by any solder bridge short, when re-soldering. Electro help

There are some kind of coloured dots and patches all over the monitor and the same thing appears even after switching it off and switching it on again.

Seems that you Monitor is having issues with the pixels.
You mentioned that it also is present when turning ON and turning the Monitor OFF right, if that is the case then you monitors screen needs to be replaced.
A pixelated monitor can only be fixed if replaced.
When you say Monitor do you mean a CRT Monitor or an LCD Monitor? for a CRT Monitor it is just going to be like a TV the picture tube can be repaired or a part can be replaced but for an LCD Monitor that will be replacing the LCD Panel.
