    I'm having a problem with my monitor. Sometimes I'll be playing DAoC and my comp'll freeze up(different issue). I'll hit reset, my monitor will do the DPS Suspend Mode. Then shut off even though the comp will continue to come on. It takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 6 hours(that's only happened once) for it to work when I turn the power on. I have no idea what is required, information wise, so I'll wait til someone says something.

    sounds to me like your monitor is getting too hot. even though it is remaining on, when the reset is done the heat is too high in the unit itself and it will not come on till the temp reaches a safer level.
    I am not sure what would be required to fix it since i really never mess with monitors. few places actually do anymore. cheaper to get a new one than have them worked on.

    sorry i could not be more help on that one.
