I have screen saving/blanking disabled in Win 98, but occasionally, my screen blanks and my monitor is put into off mode.  There is nothing I can do to restore the screen, until I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del twice.  While the screen was blank, Win 98 was still working because I can hear system sounds when I pressed various buttons.

I have no idea what's happening.  Anyone got a clue?

Hi,

    Make sure you don't have APM enabled in Windows and your bios for your monitor.  I think the monitor is going into energy-saving mode.  You need to disable that APM (advanced power management) option to keep your monitor "awake."
