What monitor are you using?
I leave my monitor plugged into a hot outlet and when the PC powers off completely the monitor just goes into standby. If you are using a UPS and the monitor is plugged into a switched outlet then the monitor will power off. Normally from a power off the state, you will see the monitor status screen (scanning for an active video port).
Try a monitor reset. Unplug the monitor’s power cord and hold down the monitor’s power button for 30-60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and power it up. Be sure that the outlet, powerstrip etc. keeps a hot outlet for the monitor.
Bottom line: You are stuck between to choices. Totally off or standby. Standby does have a very low power draw so it's not totally "green" but it does avoid the monitor status screen.
