    After hooking up a new monitor, Dell 2010H, and it not leaving power save mode, I tried re-hooking up my old monitor, but my old monitor wouldn't leave power save either; so I tried powering down by holding in the power button (because, of course, without a monitor I couldn't navigate to shut the computer down properly) and then starting it back up. I have also tried the power button on both monitors them selves and when I do the indicator lights come on and then quickly turn to amber--sleep mode I assume. Everything was working fine until I hooked up the new monitor.
