Is this by any chance an acer computer?

It sounds like you've got the logo enabled in bios.

Nope, only the monitor is acer...rest I built it from scratch.

Does it have both VGA and DVI ports, and is it set up to auto detect?

If so, set it up to default to whatever type of port you are using.

Other than that.... I'm not sure what it could be unless there is some form of hardware "sleep" mode set either in bios, video bios (that would be the first I've heard of it) &/or the monitor menu settings which is inducing a couple of second delay before it kicks in.

Try finding the "return to default settings" for your monitor.

And where could I find the setting to auto detect?... I use a adaptor for the cable monitor that goes into the video card.
I reseted the monitors settings (nothing so far).

Have you tried the second port on your vid card?

Will it display the bios settings if you press the appropriate settings?

Have you turned off all power saving settings in bios?

Other than that I'm stumped.... you will need to try a different vid card &/or monitor.

I've put it on the second port, now I'm gonna disable all the power savings settings, reinstall drivers.
Also I've got some power savings settings in the control panel, can't disable those..vista...

Update: Yup, still doing the same thing...
Note to self: no more acer on the future :|

the acer logo is something that is probably hard coded into the monitor. you could always just leave the computer on :)
