My external monitor goes to sleep and when I roll the mouse it says no signal until I hit a few keys. Everything I can find on the computer is set for it not to do this, but it still does it. I does not do it if the computer is on a website that has things going on like, for example, CNN that has stuff flashing and changing. It's making me nuts!

Hopefully somebody else can help a little more, as I don't know what may be causing this, but if you're looking for a janky band-aid type fix, I've heard of people writing VB scripts that move the mouse one pixel to the left and right. Set that on a timer and the machine will think somebody is using it.
