Windows 7: External Display Standby Problem [Freeze]

External Display Standby Problem [Freeze]

I have an ASUS F81SE laptop running Windows 7 x64 b.7127. This problem involves the connection of a BenQ T2200HD 22" LCD monitor (analog connection) and does not occur if the external monitor is disconnected.

Under power management settings, W7 is set to turn off the monitor after 20 minutes and sleep after 30 minutes. After W7 tells the monitor to sleep, the system is very slow to resume operation when a key is pressed or the mouse moved (the computer is NOT in sleep mode at this point, just the monitor). After 'waking up' **the cursor can move but everything else is frozen.** Sometimes the system will start functioning again after a few minutes, sometimes it won't and I have to force a hard reboot. Not good!

Windows is not reporting any device malfunctions in the error log, so I'm not sure what's going on. And it only occurs with the external monitor connected. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Thanks so much,

Freeze after idle and BSOD after standby
Hi everyone I have two systems both behaving strangely. Each has its own original Win7 x64 disc, so I can rule out a defective disc. They both BSOD after standby, and freeze for 5-10 secs after idle. This seems to be a fairly common problem, with loads of threads, but I'm yet to find a solution...

Display Crash and Computer Freeze
Lately, when I play games for about 15-30 minutes, my screen shuts off and my computer freezes. Occasionally the sound will loop or it will keep playing sounds with no response. This has only been happening the past few days and I can't figure it out. Can anyone help me?
