MOnitors go into sleep mode and won't come back up,

Wasn't really sure where to post this but maybe someone can help me with this very annoying problem I've been having recently.. OK once my monitors go into sleep/hibernation mode they stay black no matter what i do i have to restart the pc to fix the problem also all the lights on my keyboard go out,, my mouse lights up when i move it but the monitors still stay black,, i never had this problem with the beta and I'm about to pull my hair out I've been up and down through the settings and i can't find any thing that would cause this,, any incite on this problem would b much appreciated!!..

I've noticed a similar issue but noticed that my monitor will eventually come back up if I wait a few minutes. What I've done is to turn the monitor sleep function off in the power settings and I just use a screensaver.

I figured it out i had the settings for both of my samsungs set to 70Mhz refresh.. apparently they don't like that for what ever reason restoring factory defualts fixed the problem
