I have Windows 7 on my T410 set to turn off my monitors (I use a docking station) after 15 minutes of inactivity.
The problem is that when I come back to the computer, I cannot get the monitors to come back on. They actually turn on, but remain blank. No matter what I do they won't come on. This happens every time.
I have found that if I close the lid and make it go to standby mode, and then open and come out of standby, it will SOMETIMES make the screens show a picture.
What is also weird is that when I open the lid, sometimes Windows will ask me for my password, and then after I enter it, the screens will go blank again. So I have to keep going to standby 2 or 3 times till it works.
This happened both on the Lenovo version of Windows 7 and my own clean version of windows 7 that I installed.
