I am running Ubuntu 12.10 64bit and my monitor is attached via HDMI. About 5 seconds after my monitor goes into sleep mode it "wakes up" however the screen is still black so it kind of looks like it is asleep (but it really isn't). I have tried turning the screen lock off and on but nothing has worked. I also didn't find anything similar to this in the forums.

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

When you type the keyboard or move the mouse does the screen do anything, or does it just stay black?

It stays mostly black. On the very edges of the screen I can see a little bit of the desktop. In order to get back to my desktop I have to turn off my monitor and then turn it back on.
