At work, I have a really bad monitor (generic trademark with unknown model/manufacturer) which sometimes goes randomly off. It is connected with a VGA cable (not HDMI).
I believe that goes to some energy saving mode. It does not powers on no matter what I do.
I plugged it to 2 different PCs, and it behaves the same, so I think is a hardware problem of the monitor, and not a software one.
If I push the shutdown button of the PC (windows 7 64), it awakes the monitor to ask if I really want to shutdown/show the list of running programs. That's the only way in which it powers on (unless I reboot the PC).
I'm looking for some command line, script or program which sends the command to awake to the monitor, periodically (maybe once a minute, or each 10 seconds).
Do you know any software solution?
