    Default Dual Head 8500GT, wake up from sleep mode issue

    Hi all, friends new pc, Vista Premium, Gigabyte 8500GT, 1 HP2045w on the DVI head (primary)and 1 Phillips 15" on the VGA head (secondary) and using nvdia CP for expended desktop.

    When the monitor has gone to sleep only the 15" on the VGA head comes out of sleep mode, turning the digital monitor on & off gives the message no signal then sleeps, but the 15" is okay.

    Because the start menu is on the digaital (primary), we cant turn off the pc without using the on/off switch.

    Anyone know why the primary dual head doesnt wake up?

    These are new components, faulty DVI port on the card?

    At a guess, more likely an issue with Vista.

    Yeah, have actually stumbled on a few threads about sleeping disorders with the nvidia driver and Vista, will try a driver update.
