I've been having an on-going issue with the hibernate/sleep mode, to the point, where I need to keep my hand on the mouse to be able to read for more than a minute on the display. I know that it is not the monitor, as I used this same monitor to work on a friend's desktop, and the unit NEVER went to sleep. I've tried MANY of the "fixes" in e-How, from Microsoft, and others from Google. And they never work. When I reboot, within a minute or two, the display goes blank. HELP!!!

have you checked your power scheme settings. Looks like its set to go into hibernate after 2 mins.

I checked the "Power" settings, and find that it is set to 5 minutes for the display, and 15 minutes for the drive. By actual timing, the display turns off about 57 or 58 seconds after the last mouse movement, every time. I also tried to set my own sleep/ hibernate schedule, and that does NOT change the length of time that the display stays on. Any other ideas??

Turn them both OFF and see if you still have the problem?
If so, then it is something else, maybe even hardware.

Well, dang!! I should have said from the gitgo that I was talking about a home-built DESKTOP. I'm thinking that this is a Win-7 issue.

There must be something else installed that's controlling the power options settings. Take a good look at every program you have installed. Anything related to security, performance, tweaking, etc. could be the culprit.

Who else has physical access to your computer? Is it possible someone is pranking you?

No, it is not a Windows 7 issue, but a setting that you or a program has set or a hardware issue.

Did you turn off the sleep/hibernation as suggested above?
