It is possible your Video card is acting up since the Auto-On sequence is very early in the Pre-Post process of your Computer. It also could be the Monitor itself.
My system does that occasionally maybe once per month.
Since your system is quite often I would suggest trying to turn the Monitor on prior to starting the boot sequence of the computer and see if that circumvents the problem.

Does your system respond to a control,alt,delete command when this happens? Mine does and the monitor starts and windows loads to sign in screen but my mouse is inoperative then consequently I am forced to reset and run through scandisk.

Possibly could be the problem. It is up to you whether you download latest drivers or live with the anomaly. Sometimes it is better to leave well enough alone!;)
