Computer Screen Blackout Problem?

Do you have trouble with a computer screen (monitor) switching itself off from time to time?

I went through a phase recently where one of my two computer monitors would refuse to wake up from sleep mode, or just apparently switch itself off. One moment I’m working with two monitors, then suddenly one goes black – and I can no longer see what’s on that monitor!

Here’s a solution:
Reach behind the monitor and switch it off. Wait a minute or two, then switch it back on. This usually resolves the problem and saves  you needing to log an ‘Assyst’ ticket with IT.
