So very recently I have had this interesting debacle where both my monitors will go to sleep (after windows puts them to sleep) but when I go to wake them (mouse or keyboard), only one will wake back up. My primary monitor (an ASUS) will act as if it's not getting any signal. I can turn it off and back on and still nothing. The only thing that seems to fix it is physically unplugging it or going into the nvidia control panel, disabling that monitor, then re-enabling it.


I'm at a loss for what would cause it.






Specs: ASRock Z77 Extreme4, i5-3570k, EVGA GTX 660, 3x 4gb DDR3, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, ASUS VE278 Monitor

How are you connecting the two monitors?
