Dear Mr Cheeze,
	Thanks for answering. Actually my BIOS supports power management and I have
disabled it. Also I verified that my monitor is not switching the power on
its own. Can you please give me some ideas to solve this problem.

Regards
RD

I would check to be sure that you don't have a setting in your bios that
is powering down the screen. My bios has power management settings in
it. Also, I was under the impression that some energy-star compliant
screens power down of their own volition, with nothing to do with the
operating system. As always, I could be completely off-base, but I hope
I've said acurate info.
