    The system works fine during normal windows environment - the monitors works perfectly. Only while setting BIOS it enters into power safe mode after a few minutes. The power save mode also kicks in other situations: a) during a Macrium Reflect image restoration through a flash drive, and b) under dos environment through Ultimate boot CD. I have tried suggestions in this forum such as cleaning and re-inserting cards and cables, setting sleep only after 2 hours, etc. But none of this works. Many thanks.

    Check the bios setup power settings.
    Make sure the are no timers and such that
    are set to put the monitor or computer in standby
    after a period of time.
    The low level programs that you run won't take over
    the bios power settings,but windows will.

    There is no timer setup. Dell Bios setup is minimal.

    I was moving the mouse and pounding the keyboard and the monitor shut down suddenly. When I tried to play with the monitor , a message is displayed saying the monitor receiving no input signal.

    It worked 2 months ago, when I did an Macrium image restoration. This problem occured a day ago when I did another image restoration. I ran into other power save situations when I tried to troubleshoot it.

    Thanks for your attention and quick reply.

    "pounding the keyboard"
    May have damaged the keyboard causing some erratic key
    combinations to be sent.
    May have hit a combination that cause the initiation of power features.
    You might go to the dell website and download the manual.
    Check it to see if there are any keyboard key combinations that
    may activate power saving features.

    Sorry, I exaggerated. I was moving the mouse when I saw the screen went blank. Then I tried key by key to re-activate. Thanks again
