Ok, I'm not sure if this is a video card thing.

I am running a Gigabyte motherboard, GA-965P-DS3 and an XFX Geforce 8800video card, and Vista 64. The problem is, when I leave my computer for awhile and the monitor goes into "sleep" mode, it won't come out on it's own when I move the mouse or hit a key. I need to shut the monitor off and turn it back on for it to finally work. Anyone else have this problem? And is this a monitor or windows function?

BTW, the monitor is a Balance 19" LCD, if that makes a difference.

Do you 'need' the sleep function? I had a similar problem earlier on in the year and cannot actually remember how i resolved the issue - you could always just remove the sleep function. Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE whilst it is in sleep mode, see if this wakes it - if it does then the issue is probably due to a driver and Vista incompatibility or conflict.

You could try disabling "Power management" in BIOS and Windows, see if this helps.

Thanks for the response. This sounds like it is a BIOS function then? It's not a problem to disable it, unless there is a fix. But with running Vista 64, I guess I need to open to things that don't have a fix yet :)

It may be BIOS related, it all depends on the results after you try what was suggested. You will however have to change the options in both BIOS and Windows.

Hi I have a dell lattitude d820 connected to a docking station, but whenever I close the lid, the laptop goes into sleep mode. Under the power options I have set the laptop to "do nothing" when the lid is closed, so I can't figure out why it still goes into sleep mode. Any help would be...
