Primary Monitor fails to turn on
I leave my computer on after a trip to Virginia, computer may/may not be in sleep mode (It never worked. Set to a 3-hour inactivity schedule), came home, and only my secondary monitor turns on from sleep. The first fails to wake from sleep (After turning on).
GCard: NVidia GeForce GTX 560, most recent Driver (Has happened even before this version update).
Primary Monitor: Acer S200HL LCD monitor.
This has previously happened (Except Secondary Monitor didn't turn on. I probably had not played around with it enough to wake up), and restarting my computer is the only viable fix. Previously, I could not turn on my computer with two screens without a problem. The Windows Screen would load up fine, but when I get to the Login Screen, it blacks out.

Deleters, welcome to SF.
I'm not a fan of any sleep mode or forced turn off modes other than with my UPS in battery mode. That being said I use a screen saver and never let my rig sleep but that's me. I turn my rig off if I plan to be away any longer than 30 minutes as the boot time and program load time with my SSD is so fast. I would say set your power settings to never sleep and never turn displays off. Then if you want as you want away for a longer time then just turn power off at the monitors and let the PC stay powered at idle.
