2159m problem

I just got a 2159m and it's great, except for one thing.  For years, I have left my computer on all the time and just turned the monitor off when I'm not using it.  But when I do that with this monitor, it will not see a signal on the DVI or VGA ports when I turn it back on until I reboot my computer (I haven't tried the HDMI port).  I also tried just having Windows put the monitor to sleep after a set time, but it does the same thing when I try to wake it back up.  Does anyone have a solution for this?  I tried emailing HP tech support about this, but they just responed with instructions on how to put the computer in sleep mode.

 

Thank you.

Re: 2159m problem

I just purchased one of these 2159m monitors KaveFish. Blows away my old vs19.

But I get the exact same problem. Sometimes it turns off after the Windows XP loading screen.

Then I have to put the PC into Standby mode using keystrokes Windows, U, S (no screen displaying).

When I hit a key, the monitor wakes up. Annoying.

 

  

It's a long link, but it might help.
