Does it only go to sleep after you havnt touched the computer for some amount of time, or does it ever sleep while you are actually using the computer?

I would suggest downloading an updated driver for your video card. I have the same card as you and ever since i updated the driver it has worked

My monitor keeps going to sleep everytime I turn it back on. How do I get it to stay on so I can change the settings?

Re: my monitor keeps going into sleep mode

Have you tried all the things already posted in this thread?
Is it a laptop or a desktop monitor?
Is it Windows or a Mac?
What version of Windows or OS X (if a Mac) ?

There isn't any burning electronics smell,is there?

You are more likely to replace your computer 5 times before you ever need to change your monitor but they do eventually break down and a monitor that is short circuting might look like it is "going into sleep mode"

It's actually the CRT not getting enough power that makes the screen "pop off" and the CRT trying to draw the power that makes it "pop on" and if you are EM sensitive like me you can feel the the 50,000 volts flickering back and forth  if it is doing that on a failing Monitor

A circut breaker in some models will prevent the Crt from keep from trying to draw it's 50,000 volts repedatively which leads to the burning electronics smell which then can lead to monitor explosion and/or  fire by just turning the monitor into Sleep mode

 If your monitor is turning of for no appartent reason,after checking the settings on the computer and on the monitor, it may not be good already

it's a power saving thing. if you're running windows, click on your Start menu, then Settings, then Control panel, then Power options. you can then set the timers, including "turn off monitor," for whatever you wish. if you're not on a windows PC then look for wherever your power settings are. you can also usually set this in the BIOS when you cold boot, but it's easier for most people to just do it in the operating system so don't worry about that unless you can't find any other way to do it.

Hi there people I cant find any other way to stop it from doing it while playing games like Battlefield 2, etc. I am running Windows XP Professional and despite trying :
1) Right click on mouse anywhere on main screen

2) Left click on "Properties"

3) Left click on "Screen Saver" tab

4) Left click on "Screen Saver" Scrool down menu and select NOne

5) Left click on "Apply" button

6) Left click on "Power" button in Power Option section

7) Left click on "Turn off Monitor" Scroll menu and set to "Never"

8 ) Left Click on "Apply" button

or doing this through My Computer: The Control Panel either.

Could it be an old graphics card maybe? All those games used to work sweet on the same one and my older card too.

Thanks for your continuing support :) PC problems are a NiGhTmArE!!! XD
