    Checked out the Readme first thread. I couldnt resolve the issue.

    Just purchased this R1F pre-owned. Works great except that when it goes into standby mode the screen goes blank. In both laptop and tablet mode, the screen does not come back on.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you added the Asus R1F drivers ( video, chipset, etc. ) from support.asus.com?

    Can your monitor come back from a simple screen saver mode that turns off your monitor?

    If you force standby, can the screen come back from that ( maybe the system is getting tied up trying to go to hibernate )

    You could try pulling the video and chipset drivers from support.intel.com

    No screensaver is active.

    I set my system standby time to 1 minute. Was able to turn it back on.

    Sadly, I am unable to duplicate the problem now. Lets hope it stays like this. I will update this thread if things change.

    Then it sounds like your problem might be a hibernate issue rather than standby.

    So here is whats happening. I've noticed that the HDD Lights are on but the screen is still black however I've noticed that the screen is actually ON and I can see My desktop! Imagine if your brightness was set to of You can barely see the desktop but its there. I thought it was a Monitor lamp problems but when running on AC power, the monitor does not do that,
