Default Win 7- Graphics Card Not Resuming from Screen Power off- Please Help!!!

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit edition. I think this problem may have started after I updated to a newer Nvidia graphics driver, but it's horrible!! I have my screen set to turn off after about 20 minutes of idle time. Almost once every day, when I move the mouse to turn the screen back on, the monitor will be reactivated from standby, but the graphics card will not send a signal to the monitor. I either have to restart the computer, or put the computer in standby and turn it back on. Anyone know how to fix this? I already tried uninstalling the new Nvidia driver and installing a new one, but it did nothing.

How new is the driver? please post a download link, if it's new it may be a bug on their side.

At first I had installed the newest one, but then I rolled back to this version from May 2013. NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 320.18 Driver WHQL

Have you had a look in the nvidia control panel and seen if there is an option for this?

Yes I have, can't find any setting involving screensaver/monitor standby. They all have to do with 3d and color settings.

Since rolling back the driver have you had the same issue?

Yep, it's very odd, in fact I just now had the problem again. I'm getting to the point where i just may reformat.
