Re: Stuck in power saver
Try the unlock procedure:
With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets.
If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages?
Is the power indicator light on?
If so, what color is it?
Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\
If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it?
If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting.
Good luck... And let me know.

Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds this will turn the system completely off wait 5 seconds then turn it back on as soon as it boots up go into power options in the control panel and click the option from power saver mode to do nothing as there is a fault with some computers that it gets stuck in power saver mode
Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.
There is something electrically wrong in your monitor which an electrician can identify and fix.
There is nothing to worry, some capacitor might've shorted out.
It'll be fixed cheaply.
Hope this works.
Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.
When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.
One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.
i fixed this problem by unplugging the monitor, unplugging the video cables. Then hold down the power button while plugging it back in. Release power button and then press power button for on. It worked then. I got the icon for no signal, i plugged back in my monitors. Sceptre X9W
