no screen after resuming from standby on laptop?

  GEEKSTA 20:33 02 Dec 06

when i put my laptop screen down it automaically goes onto stand by (no prob with that)

But when i lift the lid again it doesnt always come on,
it turns on and i can hear the fan come on but the screen stays blank. Sometimes it works ok. With no screen light up i have no option but to turn it of from the botton.

Any ideas on what the problem is, and why there is no screen after lifting me lid??

Are you using a 3D or slide-show screen saver?

They are known to cause problems (mainly with hibernation).

Try an 'ordinary' (not 3D) screen saver.

my screen saver is just the windwos xp one.
Its only when I put the lid down it goes to standby and then sometimes when i lift the lid the screen does not load.

I would just turn off hibernation and turn off stand by. I need to anyway when leaving downloads running.
