    My monitor will randomly shut off while the PC is still running. I can't get the display to show up on my monitor unless I turn off my computer and boot it back up. I have the latest drivers for Nvidia.

    Does the monitor actually power down or does it just lose signal?

    Are you sure the PC is still responsive in the background?

    Maybe signal? When I go to turn the monitor off/on it does the whole power lighting up thing (one of those buttonless monitors).

    Idle about 25-35. Under load for my GPU is 60ish. Rest is under 40.

    Can you have a look in event viewer and see if there are any errors in relation to display devices/drivers.
