    Hi, I've just built a new PC and have had no problems with it, and still don't apart from when I play a game; Pro Evolution Soccer 2008. The game runs fine, then after around 30 minutes the monitor seems to switch to standby...as if I'm sleeping the computer (there's a nice smooth transition!). However, I can still hear the sound from the game. If I then hold the power button, sometimes it comes back up and I can carry on, or, it restarts the computer. I have a Hanns G HW191D and an ATi Radeon x1950pro. Any ideas what the problem is? I'm not sure if the computer's just going on standby or not but I can't find the settings for that (I'm new to vista)...but also I can still hear the sound so surely it's not going on standby.

    Any help appreciated :D
