    I have my monitor set to go to sleep after 15 minutes of inactivity. Once it goes to sleep, it doesn't wake back up unless I either restart the computer or power cycle the display. Being that the BIOS wakes it up with no problem, I assume my computer just isn't sending the wake signal. By the way, the monitor is a Hanns-G HH281.

    I have PCI-e link state power management turned off and input auto-search on the monitor turned off. No matter what I try I can't seem to get it to wake up normally. Once it goes to sleep, I have about 10 seconds to move the mouse or press a key to get it turn on, but once the light turns orange and it displays no signal, I have to power cycle it.

    Can anyone offer some insight into this issue? Thanks!
