Monitor does not wake From Sleep

Whenever I put my PC to sleep mode, I'm never able to wake up the monitor with my keyboard or mouse. The computer itself wakes up, alongside with my mouse and keyboard, but never the monitor. I always hard restart with the front panel power button to turn it off. When I turn it back on, it comes straight to where I was. I'm starting to think that a hard restart actually isn't turning off my PC when it's in sleep mode; rather waking it up. I recently got a new monitor, and it still occurs. My guess it may be something I need to change within the BIOS, or its a graphics card problem. I'm updated to the latest 13.11 beta drivers for my 7970. I highly doubt it is my video card; everything else seems fine within games, and normal browsing.

It is very common. I had this problem and then it went away. What motherboard? Check all your power settings and make sure no 3rd party software controlling sleep.

Typically screens not waking up is a video driver issue, or a BIOS issue. Make sure both are up to date. Because you are using a beta version of Catalyst, I suspect that may be where the issue resides? Try reverting back to 13.9. Make sure you completely remove the existing 13.11 driver and reboot before installing 13.9.

I tried installing the 13.9 drivers before. Not sure if something specific is keeping it asleep. I went about searching and found that I may be in S1 power mode; and that I should switch to S3. My motherboard is Intel DX79T0. I cant find the option to switch power modes... http://i.imgur.com/BbJ49jM.jpg

Might not be available with that BIOS version. Link to the Express BIOS utility with the latest BIOS below:

Edit: found the following items in the change log that affect resuming the system from the S3 state:

In revision 0380:

- Fixed issue where disabling the S4/S5 Wake-on-LAN causes the system not able to wake-on-LAN in S3.
- Fixed issue where S3 resume failed when Runtime Turbo Ratio is enabled.

In rev. 0494:

- Reduced S3 resume time.

Sounds promising I'll try this when I get home busy currently
