    Dear Egg Spurts - My rebuilt comms tower is working fine with MSI
    K4/Athlon2600XP/GForce5200. Hansol 900P monitor is connected by BNP but
    when tower goes to standby/hibernate, monitor does not go to black as
    before rebuild. Have looked for options in BIOS but can't spot any.
    Back to D-plug I guess?
    All help gratefully received

    Not too sure on this. The only solution I can think of is what you say -
    back to a D Plug, as obviously the BNP remains powered in standby. If
    there's no BIOS option (which I don't reckon there would be unless it killed
    the whole AGP port on standby) there may be a graphcis card tweak or BIOS
    upgrade. Maybe get in touch with the card manufacturer.

    If I come across an answer I'll let ya know!

    Thanks Dan. Have gone back to D-plug and "sleep" is fine. It's just
    I'm trying to hang on to my 7 year old Hansol 19" which is still almost
    doing a good job! AGP card is Sparkle GForce 5200/SP8834 with newest
    drivers ( I think) version, 07/28/2003.

    I might stick with Iiyama 454 which I use as well. USB hub, dwarf
    speakers and 250 UKP. I like the 3 different screen settings. What
    d'ya think? Some Philips look good
