Black screen says it's in Power Save Mode
Not sure whether this should be under Windows or elsewhere.
When my wife tried to log in to her Vista PC this morning the monitor showed only a black screen and an orange light rather than green. Rebooting produced the same result. Thinking that the monitor has developed the same problem as mine, namely the need to allow the monitor about 5 minutes to warm up before switching on the PC, I tried that a few times without success.
At that stage I thought she needed a new monitor, but I tried pressing the buttons on the front of the monitor. Each gave the same message about being in Power Save Mode and to press the power switch, any key on the keyboard, or move the mouse. None of these had any effect.
Connecting my monitor to her PC gave the same result, and hers worked fine on my XP machine.
So, as there is nothing wrong with her monitor, the problem must be Power Save Mode on the PC. But with only a black screen how does one cancel it? Or will it revert to normal after a more lengthy period of being switched off, such as by tomorrow?
