have you test your monitor to different pc? or test different monitor to your cpu? if your monitor works in different cpu , guess your cpu has a problem , either its overheating or your cpu is filled with a lot of dust , try to vacuum / clean it ... if you still occur the problem , it must be your cpu's power supply has a problem.

Hit the power button to restart ( briefly, don't hold ) or turn the sleep cycle ( Standby ) off.
If your computer is NOT a laptop/notebook then you can stop Hibernate .
Hibernation, reserves disk space equal to your RAM.

✔ Best Answer
The problem is most likely NOT the monitor.

Click on the link below to reconfigure your power settings. Set the hard drive and USB, if listed, to never. Your system is going into a suspend or hibernate mode and isn't waking back up.

Some systems just don't seem to hibernate well, I turn it off and adjust the power options in the control panel.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

Hibernate mode is intended for laptops to conserve battery power not for desk tops... is yours a laptop?
