The orange light also means the computer's power is off.
I think what you want is for the monitor to turn off, but also the computer not to go into standby.
Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options > Make sure the time to "Turn off hard disks" and "System standby" is Never.
Now set the time of "Turn off monitors" to something you find suitable.

Perhaps some components of your computer are shutting down automatically.
Have you tried putting the hard disk setting to "Never" and leaving your computer on?

Try a different monitor
Try the monitor on a known working system
Try going back to post #2 and disable all power savings instead of just hard drives
Try turning off hibernation mode
I doubt very much this is a heat problem since the system itself keeps running.
If the system was overheating with most cpu's nowadays the system would shutdown a a safety feature.
