Hello,The monitor on my HP Pavilion desktop keeps going into sleep mode.The screen shows several lines down the screen that look like the pixels when satellite TV is interrupted because of weather. Then I get "Monitor going to sleep". I have to use power button to restart. It's been happening more and more. Is computer shot??

What about the Stand By setting?

When it happens, can you still turn the CAP LOCK light on your keyboard on and off?

Never tried the CAP light. I'll try that the next time it happens.

I have the system to go into standby after 20 minutes, but the monitor to go into standby "Never"

I didn't think it was good to have the computer and monitor on all the time; thus the standby mode for computer.

I really appreciate your trying to help.

I have to leave not, but, if you reply, I'll get it tomorrow.

Thanks again.
