Dual monitor - Second monitor  does not recognize input when waking up from sleep

Angelmar used Ask the Experts™

I have two monitors, one VGA (main) and the other DVI on a docking station. When my computer goes to sleep and it comes back on, the second monitor doesnt automatically come up. I have to turn off and back on for it to recognize it again. Any solution? Thanks.

See if there is any power settings on the monitor.  I have a similar setup and both of my monitors always come back when I move the mouse.

You might also try a different monitor to see if it is specific to that make/model.

Also make sure your video drivers are up to date.
