For a month Sniper_Wolfe's computer has been turning the monitor off and going into power saving mode. It will go to "sleep" and nothing can be done to revive it except resetting the CMOS by taking out the battery and moving the jumper then turning it back on. If you restart the computer without resetting the CMOS the monitor will never "wake up." I've tried it with a different monitor so we're sure it's an issue with the computer. I've tried turning off all of the XP Power Saver options as well as some of the BIOS options. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions. This is becoming quite frustrating.

replace the cmos battery with a new one.. if that doesn't fix it most likely a mother board problem

Make sure the monitor cable is securely in the video card plug-in. The computer might be losing the signal from the monitor.

Is it a Gigabyte motherboard? I've RMA'd two in the past year for that same crap.
