Vista doesn't resume from monitor standby RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did a brief search here and didn't find anything on the subject.

    If my monitor powers down after the timeout given in the power management applet, vista will not resume.  When I move the mouse, I will get a mouse pointer on a black screen, but nothing else will happen.  Sometimes, pressing ctrl-alt-delete will bring up the menu, to which I can press cancel and vista will come back to life.  Most of the time, I have to press the power button on my pc.  If I only use a screensaver, this behavior never happens.  Anyone have an idea on how to fix this issue?

    Thanks,

  • It seems you have a confilct between monitor driver and Windows Vista, try to uninstall your monitor driver if it's not compaitable with Windows Vista and give it a try. Create a restore point for precautions.

    Good luck

  • Thanks for the tip, I installed the specific driver for my monitor, but i still get the same results.  I've set my monitor standby time to 1 minute.  After I move my mouse to wake the monitor up, I get a black screen with the mouse pointer.  It stays this way until it goes back to sleep, but just before it goes to sleep, my desktop appears for a split second before it fades back out.  Any other ideas?
