It sounds to me like your monitor has an intermittent internal issue, probably related to a controller board built inside the monitor.
Monitors are very dangerous devices to service internally, because they have components inside which store lethal amounts of AC current long after the monitor has been disconnected from its power source.
Therefore I can NOT recommend or offer any advice on servicing this piece of hardware. It is better to have it serviced by a qualified service center.
Often this sort of behaviour is bad electrolytic capacitors, but could be fractured solder joints or as you say, a hard starting CCFL lamp. If you're competent with electronics and electrical safety, you could investigate, but as MrBruce commented, otherwise it should be left to experienced service folk.
