I have been having an odd issue with my U3011 when it tries to go to sleep at random times. As you can see from the vids below, the power button stays blue, instead of going amber, and the image shifts around. I can see parts of my desktop, in a darkened state in various parts of the screen. I am using Windows 8.1, with 3770K, Asus P8-Z77V Pro board. I have tried various AMD video drivers, Windows 8 instead of 8.1. I am connected by the Display port on my Gigabyte 7970Ghz video cards.

When this happens, I have no problem waking the computer up. As soon as I touch the mouse, it snaps back to a normal desktop ready for use.

I have tried balanced, and high performance settings in the power config.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Sorry for the annoying music, with a cold, and a camera 3 inches from my face, my recording did not sound pretty.

I just tried something new. When I was getting this corruption, I turned the monitor off and back on. When it turned back on, it went straight into sleep mode as it should have been when I turned it off.

I move the mouse, and it wakes right up.
