Windows 7: Can't get back into PC after monitor turns off

Can't get back into PC after monitor turns off

Hello everybody!
I have recently experienced this issue with my PC. When my monitor automatically shuts off after certain time as I have set in windows - I can wake the monitor by moving mouse or pressing keys. The mouse and keyboard both work just fine and shine all around (since they are both from ROCCAT).
BUT
When the monitor is automatically off for a couple of minutes, thats when the things get weird. The monitor wakes up, but it shines black (if you know what I mean, I may add a photo if I can reproduce). Turning the monitor off and on again by button doesn't help. The mouse and keyboard both stop shining. Moving mouse and pushing buttons does nothing. Repluging mouse and keyboard doesn't make any change (not even windows sound of pluging in an usb). However the computer itself is still on, the fans are working and the front LEDs are shining (just the green one actually).
I also have my TV connected to the PC via HDMI and switching the input on it just shows "No signal".

Thanks for any ideas

see if hibernation is on maybe a problem with that. try turning it off if it is on to test. Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Okay, that was weird, but thanks. Hibernation was off, so I enabled it a disabled again and it seems to be fine now.
