    2 nights in a row, I lock my PC (I have Vista), go to bed and leave it uploading torrents and the such..

    I come back to it in the morning, unlock it, and all I have is a black screen. It still has sound :confused: This has happened 2 nights in a row.. but why? I have to turn off my PC with the power button and turn back on to get the screen to show something again.

    if you turn off just the monitor and then turn it back on does it solve the problem?

    Nope, the monitor doesn't compain about no signal input so obviously it knows the PC is on...

    Hmmm, odd.

    Leave it on overnight without downloading torrents and see if it happens?

    Check Power Savings? It would be strange that they'd have changed, as well as if the keyboard/mouse don't bring it out of standby/sleep. But check anyway.
