Hi,

  I have a user with Three 19" LCD monitors.  Since I got him a new Windows 7 Pro computer that came with one intergrated DVI and a PCI video card with 1 VGA and 1 DVI, it takes a minute to repain the a couple monitors after user logon screen followed by the wake-up from the screen saver.
  I have never see  these before. On screen resolution/advanced settings, I see 60Mhz on all of them.

Thanks.

I would see if the Hard Drives are going to sleep also.  Have to go to Power Settings, and then advanced power settings.  There might be some other settings in there you may want to change also.

it's a windows/monitor/driver issue the multiple desktops take longer to wake up as they have to be configured and told to wake.
you could say turn off monitors never under control panel, the monitors will still sleep, but they will awaken faster.

Thanks for the information and I apprecaite it.
The power setting was set to NEVER turn off monitor and hard drive, other than screen saver with password protection.

It turned out to be that the new video card was incompatible perhaps with either intergrated video card or motherboard itself.
I took the NVidia Quatro PCI card from his old PC and put it into new Win7 PC and it worked like a charm.

Thanks for the suggestions.
It was the incompatible video card on INTEL BLKDH61CR Motherboard.
