LCD monitor freezing in the "on" position

I have a Gateway 18" LCD monitor (FPD1830) which is acting oddly. At times the monitor freezes with a blank screen and in the "on" position. The monitor will not turn off when I press the on/off button (it remains lit in the on position). The only thing I can do is unplug it and plug it back in, at which point everything is fine. It seems to happen when the screen is switching resolutions, such as when certain screen savers are loading, or when the computer first boots up. As long as I leave the computer on with no screen saver enabled, it is fine. However, when some screen savers load or when I reboot, the screen goes blank and freezes in the "on" position. I unplug it, plug it back in, and the screen saver or windows screen is there clearly and the on/off button then works. I'm assuming maybe this is an electrical problem? Just wondering if you know what this is, if it's an easy or hard fix, and if there is anything that I can do with the computer settings or monitor settings to resolve the problem.
