Did you try to go back in time to an earlier configuration before this problem started by using "system restore"? That may undo some hidden system alteration that is causing the problem.

The same problem on this notebook (MSI GX701). Tried many versions of windows 7, but all of them has this problem. I note one thing: when windows 7 is clean (installed drivers only by windows) all works perfectly, but when I installed nvidia driver (GF9600m GT for windows 7), problem is appeared. Tried to install alternative drivers and driver special for this notebook (from official site)… No changes.

Help please! Sorry for my English

I have the same problem. I used Vista, everything worked, and now I've upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, and I have the same problem. Any solution?

I get the same thing with my PC, running Windows 7 Ultimate x64; it doesn't happen very often, and I'm using my computer most of the time so it doesn't bug me.... But perhaps it's something with the power management setup in Win7. I'd say all we can do is wait for MS to find the cause and release a hotfix to resolve the issue...

When it turns itself back on, is it by any chance running the screen saver?

Many moons ago, there was a problem with some crappy screensavers not checking monitor status before starting and if the "monitor off" timer was less than the "start screensaver" timer, the montor would actually turn back on to run the screensaver.

This is only an experiment... but have you tried setting the screensaver to 9 minutes with the monitor at 10?

Ok, never mind... The point was not whether you had a screensaver installed or not... it was the setting of the timers. The timers still run, even if there is no screensaver.
