Question about ViewSonic VP930b 19" LCD Monitor
Okay so my computer turns on fine and starts up good. But after 20-40 minutes my monitor suddenly goes black, and the green light on the monitor turns yellow. Afterwards you can turn it on and off and when you turn it back on its still yellow. Rebooting the computer makes everything work right again, but after 20-40 minutes the monitor turns black and the light turns yellow again.
This is a classic VP930 problem.
It is caused by bad capacitors in the power supply circuit.
Open the monitor, and look at the power board. There are six capacitors. Replace the 220uF @ 25V and the 1000uF @ 16V capacitors. I would recommend replacing them with 35V and 25V capacitors respectively.
If the serial number on your monitor starts with Q8H you could also have a bad IC on the main board. Q8 on the main board is an FET in an IC package. If this problem persists solder a wire from the right side to the left side. There is one pin that turns the IC on and off. All the other pins (per side) are soldered together. Do not solder the pin on the left side that is by itself. Just leave it. Solder ALL the other pins on the left to ALL the other pins on the right.
Remember, do this ONLY if the problem persists after replacing the capacitors AND if your serial number starts with Q8H.

Either you have a "sleep mode timer on the monitor".....or you just need to adjust your power options in windows.
*Start > Control Panel > Power Options.
That should fix your problem.
Check ALL settings in the Power Options
enable wake up by keyboard (press enter or spacebar, usually) from standby/sleep modes, or just enable a screensaver and disable all hibernation, sleep, and standby modes.
