    Cannot wake screen after standby

    After my Vista machine has been on standby, sometimes I cannot get a video
    signal again. The computer is working fine, it's recording on media center
    and everything. But the screen stays black. I've tried all sorts of tricks
    with the keyboard (e.g., Windows-L, Enter, Escape, ...), but it doesn't work.
    Only solution is to cut the power :-(

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Christian

    You are using a LCD monitor in digital mode? Change to analog mode. I have
    seen a few cards that will not output a digital signal when the computer
    tries to awake.

    Have you tried connecting your mouse to the PS/2 port and then clicking the
    left mouse button?

    I had that problem, to fix it I turned off my monitor then I turned it back
    on.

    Thanks, but that's not an option. I have a 5m cable and it gets distorted
    when it's analog.

    Re: Cannot wake screen after standby

    Thanks. My PC doesn't have a PS2 port, only USB. Sometimes I am successful in
    waking it up by moving the mouse or clicking the keyboard, but other times
    not.

    Re: Cannot wake screen after standby

    Thanks. That doesn't do the trick for me. The problem is a missing video
    signal from the graphics card, and the monitor can't do anything about.

    Hi Christian,

    Did you resolve this? I am having the same problems with Vista Home Premium
    on both digital and analog feeds.
