After the screen saver times out, the monitor goes to sleep. This is indicated by the blue power indicator flashing. The monitor has gone to sleep, but will not return to normal operation. There is no picture displayed. I have tried another monitor, that works fine. I have tried rebooting, but nothing seems to help, including a power off/on of the monitor. What's happening? Thanks!

adjust time for monitor time to sleep you can adjust 5 minutes to never the option available
same can be done for hard disk. This is necessary as even monitor is active and when hard disk goes to sleep you may end up in same situation
Alternatively you can activate screen saver by
right click on desktop, settings screen saver choose screen saver set time to activate screen saver.
go to performance and maintenance settings...follow these;
click windows start>then control panel>then performance and maintenance>then click power otions
navigate below..on the "settings for all on power scheme",set all to never...so your monitor will not encounter that again..
hope this helps for you and goodluck..
you may have a computer issue, you may have a monitor issue.
If the computer is powering on, (Green power led on tower and all 4 diags LEDs flash and then finally go out), then the issue is most likely the Monitor. From your description, I'd say monitor, try a different one or try this monitor on another system.
If you have diagnostic LED indications on the tower then this information may help
If this monitor is going into sleep mode the normally blue power led will change to yellow. This indicates loss of video signal or possible out of range resolution. If the picture goes dark and the power lite stays blue, you have a backlight malfunction. It can be an inverter power fault but this model mostly has worn out backlights causing a shutdown condition.
hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me.
if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep
try to turn off you screen saver just turn off power monitor to see monitor easy wake up after long time.if ok means windows screen saver have problem if still same look like is you monitor something wrong need to check
It sounds like a driver issue, but more likely the monitor driver, not the video card, since the other monitor works properly. If you go into the video properties, check the monitor settings. You should be able to switch it to a generic monitor. You also need to make sure that you have the correct monitor refresh frequency set. If you have a mis-match, the video card could send signals at a rate the monitor can;t handle, which is why it won't "wake" even after a reboot and might need to be unplugeed to get it to come back on.
