Sounds like there may be a conflict which is enabling the VESA power-save
state of the monitor.

- Can you try a different monitor?  Does it turn off with monitors that
don't have power-saving abilities?  (some early Dell monitors used to be
able to have power-save switchable on the rear)

- Have you tried updated video drivers?  It could be a strange external
event that's triggering the card to think it's supposed to be in power-save

- Have you set the refresh rate too high?
