    I have a Dell flat-panel monitor that won't wake up if I let it go to sleep. I'm running Vista Ultimate on a Dell XPS 710 with 1 GB of RAM and a dual-core Intel processor. Here are my display specs:

    Name NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
    PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0400&SUBSYS_043810DE&REV_A1\4&26F877E6&0&0010
    Adapter Type GeForce 8600 GTS, NVIDIA compatible
    Adapter Description NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
    Adapter RAM 256.00 MB (268,435,456 bytes)
    Installed Drivers nvd3dum.dll,nvwgf2um.dll
    Driver Version
    INF File oem10.inf (nv_NV3x section)
    Color Planes Not Available
    Color Table Entries 4294967296
    Resolution 1680 x 1050 x 59 hertz
    Bits/Pixel 32
    Memory Address 0xDE000000-0xDEFFFFFF
    Memory Address 0xC0000000-0xCFFFFFFF
    Memory Address 0xDC000000-0xDDFFFFFF
    I/O Port 0x0000DC80-0x0000DCFF
    IRQ Channel IRQ 16
    I/O Port 0x000003B0-0x000003BB
    I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF
    Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF
    Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys (, 7.27 MB (7,624,192 bytes), 9/17/2007 8:07 AM)

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and NVIDIA software several times without success. The only thing that's worked has been to make power management leave the monitor on all the time. That costs money and wastes energy, so I hope somebody can help me!

    if you have a usb mouse and keyboard, you have to enable the "allow usb devices to wake up" option in bios. Not entirely sure, but windows may have that option as well.
