    Is the monitor plugged in properly?

    Has the screen been dimmed, because Windows has no other power management?

    Note that HDMI can not be hot plugged, yet they lack any locking mechanism!

    DVI-D and DP are better engineered.

    Where I work have had Macs with the black screen of darkness. Was WinVidia that got hot and desoldered itself. Go for the integrated Intel solution. Buring a tea light on the WinVidia has been reflow the solder and fix them sometimes.

    wheelin 48,
    As zagam suggested, the events that you describe are likely not a Microsoft Windows 7 issue. Windows 7 is used here and the described event has never been observed here.

    is this a laptop? Check the power saving setup for the monitor. there's a setting that will dim the screen after so long. sometimes they don't wake up when mouse is moved.
    had rhe same problem after one of the up dates.
