Recently I've noticed that my 2nd monitor has a tendency to just go to sleep. There is nothing specific I do that makes it happen. Sometimes it will show a signal for 6 hours after startup or just a minute. When it goes black, the computer still recognizes it being there, and I can still drag programs to the blank screen. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have 2x BFG 8800 GT OC. Not SLI though since my motherboard doesn't support it. The monitors are only plugged in to 1 card.

Go to your power managment and adjust the settings. Usually in the advanced options.
