Make sure cables are good/connected properly. Second make sure card isn't overheating. Flickering screen is usually sign of a dying card or a dying display.

You can always turn sleep mode off by going to;
1. Start Orb
2. control panel
3. power options
4. Change when computer sleeps
5. put the computer to sleep
6. never

I know but knowing my computer isn't working properly bugs me, i dont like avoiding problems, i like to fix them. Thanks though.
--Is there any chance that this could be related to the graphics drivers and maybe i should revert to the older 8.8?
