I have programmed my desktop computer to go to sleep after being idle for 3 minutes. The problem is that it will repeatedly turn on automatically (turning the monitor on) and then it will go back to sleep after 3 minutes until the next time that it turns on automatically. There have been times that there is a glitch in the timing sequence and as the result the monitor stayed on indefinitely. How do I stop the computer from coming on automatically after it has gone to sleep? I must have a computer with sleep problems

There are numerious issues that can create Sleep from not staying put. HP has a guideline found here. A discussion can be found here, it's full of tidbits and hints. Personally, I just turn off the monitor. My 3 desktops run 24/7.

Thank you very much for your answer. Glancing at the info you sent, it appears that there is no solution. I really don't want to turn off the monitor every time I go away from the computer, which is several times every day. With all of the sophication, today, I assumed there would be a fix. I appreciate you taking the time.

Well of course there's a fix.
Dont turn them off, turn them ON.
A cheap simple IR detector (burglar alarm), or a seat switch and every time you sit down or move into the IR range on come your monitors.
