When the monitor has been off(hybernating) for a time period of 2-3 hours, and I move my mouse to wake it up, nothing happens. The monitor stays blank and won't come back on. I have to shut down and restart. Why? :thumbsup:

I have found a lot of people have that problem with bringing a system out of hibernate and sleep modes

What power saving feature(s) are you using? Standby, hibernate, etc....what?

If you have it set to go into Standby after a period of inactivity, it won't necessarily wake back up when you move the mouse unless you have it set in the settings for your mouse to do so.
