i don't think thats your monitor having the issue. sounds like when your computer goes to sleep it crashes

What graphics card do you have? What applications are running when this happens? Is this a power saving mode that turns off the monitor or does the entire computer go into sleep?

Sounds like an issue I had/have with my GTX 570. The solution I found was to just not user the power saver mode. I turn the monitor on and off as needed. Not sure if the issue persists now because I never give it a chance to happen anymore.
