Monitor won't recover from suspend mode


Help!

My LG Flatron L225WS won't come out of suspend mode, but the PC is fine.

I have to shut down the PC and start up again just to get the monitor to display.

'On AC Power' is set to Never on both and 'General', Suspend.

In Monitor Settings, it says No monitor supporting DDC/CI available.

Thanks everybody.

Post Flat screens suck

I've got the same problem at work with the L1730S. I unplugg it from sector each inactivity time.

Thanks for your tip, Steph.

Do you plug it back in before or after you press the PC's button to restore computer activity?

Does this method restore the monitor's display?

The more common issue in restoring from suspend is the video card. The monitor itself does not know if the computer is suspended or simply turned off---all it knows is that the signal is gone.

For example--with an NVidia card and the official NVidia driver, this issue was recently fixed, starting with version 180.29 of the driver.

Post your video card details, distro you are using, etc. and also try some Google searches.

Thumbs down Flat screens suck

The video card isn't the problem in my case. It's really the FLATRON which hangs when displaying a black picture for a long time.
I plug it again after.

Thanks for your reply, Pixellany

Well, the only NVidia I've got is VGA NY44 (Gforce 6200LE)

I've got GNU/Linux Debian 5, i386, Gnome 2.22, GNU Library C Version 2.7 stable
