    Sometimes while using the computer the monitor shuts off but the computer is still running. The green light on the monitor starts blinking. I have to push the button on the monitor to turn it off and then push it again to turn it back on. this gets really annoying. Does anyone know what the problem is? Thanx for any help

    Lets assume for the moment that the monitor is not defective.

    Check your settings under: Start, Settings, Control Panel, Power Options, Power Option Properties.

    I use the Always On Scheme and Never shut anything off or stand by anything. I just let my screen saver kick in after x minutes. I hate waiting for things to spin up.

    Make your choices and see what happens. Then, again, you could have a bad monitor.

    It's already on never to turn off.
    WHILE i'm using the computer the screen goes black and the green light on the monitor starts blinking. i have to turn off the monitor and then turn it back on to use it again. this happens depending on what i am doing it turns off every couple of seconds to every couple of minutes.
