Monitor shutting off

Specs: Windows xp pro, 512 mb
While my computer is running (internet or working on ms office documents), the monitor shuts off and goes to power save mode. When this happens, the computer is still running. I've tried restarting in safe mode, but the monitor still shuts off.

Does the monitor shut off or does the system/graphics stop sending a signal to the monitor?

The monitor goes black and gives a message of "entering standby mode." I move the mouse, but the monitor doesn't respond. As far as I know, it's never given a message of "no signal." I've been told it could be a bad motherboard, bad graphics card, or the operating system needs to be installed. I'm just confused now. Thanks for your reply!!!
