(Liaison for Desktops, Alienware, Monitors)Would you like to be a Dell Community Rockstar?
Yup, me too.
Brand new 1905FP. The monitor will go into power save while using DVI, not VGA. It happens sparadically, anywhere from less than a minute after booting to not happening for several hours. Once it happens though, it seems to happen much sooner the next time after resetting. To get out of power save mode I have to remove the DVI cable and power cable for about 5 min. When in the power save mode the OSB is unavailable.
I'm pretty sure I have turned off all power saving functions on the Mother board and in the OS (Windows MCE)
I took the monitor to work where the department's computer specialist tried it out on his otherwise stable Dell system and the same thing happened to him. His monitor is also a 1905FP and it doesn't have the problem.
One other thing I have noticed is that when I switch between USERS in the OS there may be a blank screen for several seconds during which the yellow power save light goes on for a couple of seconds and then the regular green "on" light comes back on, or not.
I have this problem and it's driving me nuts.
