I have the same problem among with probably millions of other Dell Users - why doesn't Dell fix this problem - why are we constantly being ignored - I have tried all the fixes 'suggested' by the Dell Moderators but not one has worked
Can someone explain what is happening!!
If someone does get a 'working answer' let me know how to fix my monitor - I really hate the Power Save feature
Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
The sleep mode is designed for portable systems to save on battery life. They do not seem to work well on desktop systems. You can go into the power management options in the control panel and set "Power Schemes" to "Always On" and set to turn off Monitor and Harddrive both to "Never".
I am having the same problem, I've tried the Windows key + enter solution but it didn't work, and I don't know how to try the other solutions when I can't see anything on the screen. Has this problem ever been resolved?
I am experiencing this problem on all 12 of my Dell Optiplex GX260. It is very frustrating. Did anyone get a solution to this?
It almost sounds like your computers came with a pci video card as well as an integrated video card. Most of the mother boards in the optiplex machines have the integrated video card on them. They are disabled when they ship out with pci video cards. If you had a pci video card but plugged the monitor into the disabled integrated video card, that may have been the problem. When you removed the pci card, the system found the integrated card and enabled it. Does that sound right?
