    You will have to reinstall or update the video driver. What are your computers specs? Make and model?

    Check Control Panel->Power Options. Make sure Standby is not set to Never

    Yes the video driver corrected itself. The driver probably got corrupted by installing a program or removing other stuff from your computer
