It sounds like your screen saver or power savings is kicking in. Once logged in, click start and type screensaver into the search box. change the time as needed.

To change the monitor's sleep timeout, run the command prompt as administrator and type this in:

POWERCFG -Change -monitor-timeout-ac xxx

where xxx is the number of minutes before putting the monitor to sleep.
