Sometimes if i leave my card overclocked and the monitor goes into powersaver mode the card droppes down to as low as it will go. It tries to run at 100/120 or something, and then the monitor wont refresh after i wake it up. Any ideas.

I had that problem with my monitor and it was the drivers,I fixed it by going to all of my frequently used resolutions and taking it from adapter default to a refresh rate that I was comfortable with on each and the card will remember what you set it at,this problem was with the 10.80 drivers,WILDONE

Or you can just turn off the power save feature. If I am gunna leave my comp on for a while (say folding overnight, which you should do...join the team!) I just shut my monitor off.
