View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't wake up monitor after reconnecting USB keyboard

February 25th, 2012, 08:53 PM
I am running 10.04 server and I don't have a monitor or keyboard connected because I do all the work with SSH. However, there are times when I can't connect and need to connect a USB keyboard and monitor, but it doesn't seem to work. I just get a blank screen as if the monitor is in sleep mode. I think the reconnected keyboard is not being recognized and can't wake up the monitor. I usually restart it using the power button at that point. Any thoughts on why the keyboard doesn't seem to wake the monitor up?
