Hi Mech,

Your monitor doesn't know what it's displaying, it just knows that there is a video source connected and running, or there isn't. If the monitor is going to sleep, it's because your computer has stopped sending video, or the monitor's sleep circuitry isn't detecting it. If restarting your PC brings things back, it sounds like the PC stops sending video. I don't use Windows, but it could be that your graphics adapter is overheating and shuts down, or that there's a glitch in the video driver. During the rebuild, your friend may have reinstalled some software or moved cables around, changing internal airflow.

Make sure you're running the latest graphics drivers and reduce your draw distance and graphics settings to see if you can go more than 1/2 hour.

Good luck!
