    not sure if im in the right forum, but maybe you guys can help me out.

    Past couple of days when i leave my computer idle for a while ive had problems getting the monitor to come back on.

    normally it would go to screen saver after a while, then go into sleep mode after that. the screen's button would turn from green to orange, and whnever id come back, id just move the mouse and the screen would turn back on.

    now the screen remains black. i can hear the computer loading back up, but the monitor doesn't show it, so i have to hard reboot the pc. it's happened 3 times this weekend after never happening before.

    also, and i dont know if it's related, but all of a sudden all my icons are hidden in my taskbar. the network connection icon (the two little monitors) isn't even in the list anymore. it was one of only 3 i had set to "show" with the volume and something else, but now only the volume is there.

    appreciate the help.
