Try updating your video card drivers. I've read that out-dated video card drivers will disable the ports themselves and not automatically re-enable them as they should when the PC comes out of standby.

If that doesn't work, I would disable "Hybrid" Sleep through the advanced power options. This feature has caused some very strange issues that I can't explain at my work place.

I use a Lap Top plugged into my Samsung TV as a work station not sure if my LT has a video card?

I have never updated drivers
do I have to go to the manufactors surport page to update these drivers?

edit I do have automatic updates turned on w/ my home theater PC and usalley leave it on or in sleep and I hear it turn on around 3:00am I'm thinking this is when the updates take place, w/ the LT I turn it off so I'm not sure if it's atuo updating, I usalley see the updates being forced when I turn off the LT.
Thanks STB
