is this a recent problem?  then a system restore can help you out
also - did you install any software recently ?  this can also be the cause
test also if it happens with another monitor, to be sure it is the cause
KimputerCommented:
Not only Windows has a hand in blanking a monitor, the monitor itself might decide it's time to sleep. To disable this, the windows commands (screensaver/powercfg) have no influence on this at all, and it needs to be done from the menu of the screen itself (using the physical buttons on your monitor). Since there are so many monitors out there, you probably have to figure this out on your own (though usually it should be easy to find, as the menu's are usually not that extensive). It's usually called sleep/auto power off/eco mode/energy saving or something similar.
