    I've had this monitor now for about 3 months and within the last month or 2 its started to go into suspend/safe mode when i move the monitor or rotate it - windows is still running but the monitor seems to think that there is no longer a signal coming down the dvi cable and the only way i've found that fixes this is to restart the pc :/
    I have managed to fix it by d/c the cables and power cable and reconnecting them but it doesn't always work - infact the last few days i've had to restart - any idas as to why ? I hope it's not a faulty monitor :o

    Gah, i spose the only other thing i can think of is to try a VGA cable and see if it's the monitor or just the cable or something

    It sounds like a possible bad connection in the signal cable causing the monitor to loose signal when the cable is moved, putting it into standby
