Monitor Doesnt Turn Off When PC Is Turned Off

Specs: Windows Vista

This problem started occurring recently and I do not recall making any changes to my system that would cause such a problem. My Sony flatscreen/widescreen monitor will not turn off even after I shut down Windows. The monitor's on/off button doesn't respond no matter how many times I press it or how hard I touch it. The on/off button simply remains an orange color when I shut down the pc and the screen goes blank. It turns green when I turn my pc on. It seems like a hardware issue with my monitor but I'm hoping others can give me their opinion on this too. Thanks!

Sounds like a problem with the momentary contact on the monitor. Not sure how those switches work but I would guess the switch activates a relay of some sort. The switch appears to be to small and light to carry the amount of current the monitor pulls.

May be a warranty issue.
