Sleep mode

By eube2003 ·
After installing Windows XP I have had this issue with not being able to start my monitor if I have been away from my computer for a while. It seems to go into sleep mode which is what it is suppose to do but it doesn't matter what key I hit or what button I use on my mouse, the monitor remains black. My hardrive however boots up, the light on the start button stops flashing and is solid once I touch a key or my mouse. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to how to fix this? It is becoming quite annoying.

Thank you for your time

sleep mode

Personally, i never use the hibernation mode because i find that there are problems. A common one is that the monitor does not "wake up" from my experience, anyways. I would disable the feature in the control panel. Not much of a solution, i know, but i disable it in the power options in the control panel.
