Monitor question

Im using Windows XP home SP3, that normally runs without any problems.

Once in a while, I will start the computer "with the monitore turned OFF". The reason being, I'm going to eat breakfast first.

If i start the computer with the monitor turned off, and then after a bit I come in and turn on the monitor, the LED on the monitor will be yellow or orange ( I forget ), but the important thing is, if i move the mouse around, it does NOT turn the LED to blue and show anything on the monitor.

When I do this, I have to turn the computer off and then turn it back on again before the monitor will display stuff.

I'm pretty sure it must be an XP setting, cause if I start the computer with the monitor ON, this problem never arises.

Anyone have an idea what is going on?
