I think the answer is that Windows 7 is checking or building your Hybernation file before it goes to sleep and the monitor/video card must think it is still running which it is.
When the Hybernation file is checked or whatever it dos itfinally goes to sleep.
Did I make any sense?
I personally turned my Hybernation mode off on my desktop. In my case it is just a waste of time and space.
Let me know what you think?
I have turned mine totally off which speeded up my computer especially when I shut it down. I still can put it to sleep without an issue.
Here is the DOS command to turn it off
Access CMD prompt using Run as Admin powercfg -h off
Just cut and paste what I wrote above with the spaces
To turn it back on powercfg -h on
