Ok pretty simple problem here in 'Power Options' in control panel under 'Power Schemes', there are no power schemes and randomly at whenever my computer feels like it my PC minitor will autoatically go into standby mode and I can't bring it back (tried everything, like turning off and back on again), I can't create any new power schemes and cant delete any or anything like that.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Go to line 204, second column, download the registry fix, and double click it to merge into your registry

OK after fixing the power schemes problem and booting up my PC this morning I still have the same problem, my monitor just went to standby and will not go back to windows at all, until I manually restart the PC and then 9 out of 10 times it will do it again so I will restart again and then it normally works for hours on end and then just again will go into standby and then will require another reboot and another again.

This problem is realy starting to become fairly annoying and I really hope somebody can help me.

Well it is a PC made by the company 'LIFE' but it is an ACPI uniprocessor PC with a MSI MS-6382 Mothorborad.

so it is not a laptop?

In control panel > power options, is hibernate (last tab) enabled or disabled?

Desktop PCs are not intended to hibernate, and many bios are not compliant with the standards for hibernation.

No it isn't a laptop

The last Tab is UPS (which I do not have)

Hibernate was enabled but I have now disabled it and I will see if this makes a difference, thanks for your help

The monitor was set to power down after 10 minutes so I disabled that and restarted my PC but the same thing happened and my BIOS is fully updated.

in bios, under power management, for sleep state, you will have atleast two choices s1 or s3--whatever yours is currently set at switch it to the other

Also, Under power management, what do you have set: min, max or user? if min or max, what are your options under USEr

Ok, in the BIOS under Power management it says nothing about sleep state and there is nothing that says min, max or user.

OK, in the BIOS these options are not there, I am not sure which version I have either, and after booting up my PC into Vista this morning I found that the monitor went into standby (in Vista). I had a flash animation running in the background and could still here the sound but could see nothing but a blank screen. This problem is becoming slightly annoying as every time it happens I have to restart my PC.
