Monitor will not wake up

Monitor will not wake up DEFAULT

Some or all of my monitors are not waking up after my computer or tablet comes back from Sleep mode. What do I do?

If the displays connected to your MST hub do not wake up after your computer goes to sleep, change the input on the monitor(s) from Auto to the correct input (for example, DisplayPort or HDMI). This prompts the monitor to send its identification data to the correct port instead of scanning for ports when the signal is lost.

After you select the correct input on the monitor(s), press the Scan button to initiate the handshake (EDID) process. For more information on the Scan button, refer to the following FAQ:

If you set the monitor to the correct video port and press the Scan button and the issue is still not resolved, you need to disable sleep mode on your computer. To disable sleep on a computer running a version of Windows, complete the following:

  1. Open Control Panel.

  2. Click Power Options.

Note: Depending on how you have the View by options set in Control Panel, you might have to click Hardware and Sound to see Power Options.

  1. Click Change plan settings for the plan in use.

  2. For both entries, change Put the computer to sleep to Never.

  3. Click Save Changes.


How to Get Your LCD Monitor Out of Sleep Mode

By Daniel Hatter

Faulty hardware can make a computer stay in sleep mode.

Windows computers contain a power-saving feature that will put any connected LCD monitors in sleep mode if they have been inactive for a set period of time. This feature is enabled by default on new computers, but administrative users have the ability to increase or decrease the inactivity time required and they can even disable the feature completely if they so choose. If sleep mode is enabled on your business computer, there are several ways to wake the LCD monitor once it has gone into this mode.

Turn on your LCD monitor, if it isn’t on already. If it is currently in sleep mode, the status LED on the front panel will be yellow. Move your mouse back and forth a few times. This will usually wake up a monitor. But if it doesn’t, continue reading.

Press any key on your keyboard. Within a second or two, the status LED on your LCD monitor should turn from yellow to green or blue (whichever color is your monitor’s “On” indicator). If it still doesn’t wake up, continue to the next step.

Press the "Input" button on your LCD monitor’s front panel repeatedly at three- or four-second intervals until your monitor wakes up. If your monitor is set to an incorrect input mode, it won't receive a video signal. After you reset the monitor to the proper input mode, it will receive the signal and wake up automatically.

If your computer just won’t wake up from the sleep you put it in earlier, don’t worry. It’s fixable…

5 fixes for Windows 10 won’t wake up from sleep issue

Before troubleshooting, you might have to LONG PRESS the power button for your computer to completely shut down, then press the power button again for it to boot up. Be sure to always shut down your PC the normal way unless you have to.

Here’re 5 fixes that have helped other users resolve their problem. Just work your way down the list until this Windows 10 not waking up from sleep problem is solved:

  1. Allow your keyboard and mouse to wake up your PC
  2. Update your device drivers
  3. Turn off fast startup
  4. Re-enable hibernation

  5. Check to see if the computer wakes up issue is solved.

Still no joy? Please move on to Fix 4, below.

Fix 4: Re-enable hibernation

Hibernation is another power-saving mode in our Windows but it’s also known to interfere with the sleep mode and cause the computer will not wake up from sleep mode in Windows 10 problem. So we can try to disable and enable the feature to see if it fixes the issue. Here’s how:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and type cmd. Then click on Command Prompt and click Run as administrator.

Hi support,

My keyboard is set up to allow "wake from sleep."  That was not sufficient though, also had to go to bios and enable usb devices to wake from sleep since I have a usb keyboard and mouse.  Doing this caused all sorts of problems including BSOD with "driver_power_failure" message on one occasion.  In all cases though, the graphics card never woke up.  This whole waking from sleep situation seems to be a BIG problem with Win 10 making this OS non-viable if it can't be fixed quickly.  Also had problems with my external Netgear WNA3100 usb wireless adapter not awakening from sleep.

I have this problem too.  But I don't think it's a windows 10 issue.  I think it's a bad graphics driver that is being pushed out as an optional update in 'windows update'.   Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver does not work, it just keeps putting the same bad driver on my machine.   Rollback driver does not work either, when the new driver is installed, it kills the old driver files.   Restore is also not a viable option, it can't find the old driver.  This is one of those situations where it is impossible to fix.  The driver causing me problems is associated with an external EVGA graphics card.  I tried researching on their company website for a solution, no luck.  I tried contacting the company.  No luck.  They are non responsive.  This is an EVGA problem. Bad software.  And it's a Microsoft issue in allowing this driver to be pushed out to the user community through windows update.

I am now caught in one of those no win situations.  I tried fixing the problem using restore.  It was taking so long,  that my monitors went into sleep mode and will not wake.  I have no monitors and have no idea where restore is in its process.  I am afraid to just turn the computer off.  Forced to allow computer to stay on for next 4 or 5 hours, will then just pull the plug.  No other option. Reboot.  Hope for the best.

Thank you EVGA and Microsoft.

Thank you for posting your response. We appreciate that time and effort that you have invested to fix the issue.

I suggest you to download the Windows 10 ISO and create a Media Creation tool and then perform Startup Repair.

Refer to the following link:

(Refer to the section "Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool " in the above article for creating the tool).

Once you have the installation media, follow the steps: 

  1. Start your computer from the installation media. Insert the disk or USB stick and restart your computer. If you see a message asking you to “Press any key to boot from DVD,” do so. If you don’t see the message, you might need to change the boot order in your computer's BIOS settings so that it first starts from the disk or USB. When you see the 'Install Windows' page, tap or click 'Repair your computer' link to start the Windows Recovery Environment.
  2. In the Windows Recovery Environment, on the Choose an option screen, click 'Troubleshoot'.
  3. Click, Advanced Options and then click on 'Startup Repair'.
  4. After this complete the repair and see if you are able to boot in to your computer.

This not an Intel or EVGA specific problem. I am having the same issue with a client's system and it has AMD Radeon graphics. My research so far has revealed an interesting trend. Every system that encounters this issue seems to have been upgraded from an earlier version of Windows. This includes new systems that shipped with Windows 10. While trouble shooting my clients system, I restored Windows to it's original state. During the process, I received a warning that if I proceeded with the restore, I would not be able to rollback Windows to it's original version. Curious since it shipped with Win 10. I completed the repairs to my clients system and resolved all issues except the Windows "Dead" Sleep issue. (I confirmed that the original installed drivers were still being used.) My guess is that the system drive will need to be wiped and a clean copy of Windows 10 will need to be installed. While researching this issue, I have read many forum and support posts. Roughly 50% either clearly state that their OS was upgraded from an earlier version or at least hint at it. Roughly 33% of all posts indicate a new system with this issue. What I am seeing leads me to believe that, with the exception of issues created by user error, this is a Windows upgrade problem. This theory makes sense to me as MS has never once introduced a version of Windows that could be upgraded to a new version without serious issues arising. Driver compatibility has always been an issue with new OS versions. That is why competent techs will not upgrade an older version of an OS. At the very least, we give the drive a full format and install a clean copy of the newest version.

My advice is this...

  • Shut off your system. (Press and hold the power button for 3 seconds if the system is frozen.)
  • Disconnect the power cord and remove the battery if applicable.
  • Hold the power button for 10 seconds to bleed off the stored energy from capacitors.
  • Connect the power cord and reinstall the battery if applicable.
  • Start the system and login when it is ready.
  • Right-click Start and select Command Prompt (Admin).
  • When it opens type: sfc /scannow and hit Enter. System File Checker will scan for and repair any problems caused by hard reboots.
  • When SFC finishes, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press Enter. This will disable hibernation and it should prevent your system from freezing. (This is a temporary measure to protect your system from further damage by hard reboots.)
  • Get a clean copy of the full OS, reformat your drive, then install the OS and appropriate drivers.
  • You can get your drivers from EVGA at this link: (Make sure to uncheck Latest Drivers to see a full list of drivers appropriate for the card and/or chipset you have selected.

Up wake monitor not will

When my monitor began refusing to wake up from sleep mode, I started researching the issue and quickly discovered that I’m not alone in my troubles. In fact, by my completely unscientific estimates, it seems that everyone has suffered from this at one point or another.

Unfortunately, there is no universal cause for this, so there’s no universal solution. However, seeing as there are several possible ways to resolve this, I’m going to run through some of the most popular causes and solutions to this age-old issue.

Also read:What You Should Do If Windows Fails to StartWhat You Should Do If Windows Fails to Start

Disable Deep Sleep (Dell Monitors)

Dell monitors (and maybe others) have a special feature called Deep Sleep, which lowers the power usage of your monitor even more than going into regular standby mode. It’s somewhere between outright unplugging in your monitor and just having it in standby.

In most cases, it’s not a very useful feature and can mean that if your monitor goes to sleep with your PC, then your monitor won’t automatically turn on again when your PC comes out of sleep.

This means you have to manually turn on your monitor when Deep Sleep is enabled. You can do that or just disable Deep Sleep on the monitor. To do this, turn on the On-Screen Display on your monitor, select “Others -> Monitor Deep Sleep,” then disable it there.

Note that other monitor brands might also have this feature, so take a look in your monitor settings to see if you have it, then disable it if you like.

Disable PLL Overvoltage (ASUS Motherboards)

Asus deals with a lot of motherboards, and for the most part, they deal with them quite well, but there are a couple of quirks on them that can cause things to go a little bit wrong. For example, most modern-ish Asus boards have a feature called “PLL Overvoltage” enabled by default. This helps overclock your CPU that little bit more, so if you’re worried about eking out those extra few-hundred MHz out of your rig, you may want to leave it on.

But if getting your PC some sleep is a priority, then you may need to turn this feature off, and to do that, you need to go into the dreaded BIOS.

Reboot your PC, then as it’s booting, press the key until the BIOS screen appears.

Things may vary a bit here from one motherboard to another, but to find the option, go into the “Advanced Mode” (the key on my Asus Z97 MOBO).

Next, select “AI Tweaker” from the options at the top of the screen, then click the drop-down next to “Internal PLL Overvoltage” and change it to OFF. Save the settings and exit the BIOS.

Disable Link State Power Management

Sometimes those seemingly helpful power options in Windows can prove to be a liability, accidentally keeping certain things in a dormant state, even when they’re definitely meant to be on. Here’s how to make sure power management doesn’t interfere with your monitor.

Go to “Control Panel -> Power Options,” then select “Change plan settings,” for the power plan you’re currently using, and “Change advanced power settings.”

Next, scroll down to “PCI Express,” click the “+” icon next to it, and under “Link State Power Management,” change the setting to “Off” and click “Save changes.”

Disable Auto-Detect in Monitor Settings

A seemingly simple option but a good one. When your monitor goes to sleep, the connection between it and the cable connecting it is severed. For some silly reason, however, when the connection gets re-established (when you bring your monitor out of Sleep mode), sometimes the monitor doesn’t re-establish that connection, even though the cable is still plugged in. A possible solution to this is to use the buttons on your monitor to switch off the “auto-detect” option.
