Specs: 
Graphics - AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series
Windows 7 64 bit
After a while I noticed that every so often when I would wake up my monitor would be off even when my computer was running.  This was not normal.  I would try all the basics to wake the monitor back up (turning off the monitor and turning it back on would traditionally return functionality 99% of the time if I ever had an issue with signal before).  Eventually I was able to isolate the issue to be directly related to windows update reboots.  After I disabled automatic updates it never happened again.  It happens every time I manually apply an update and click to reboot.
No other type of reboot causes this issue.  To restore the monitor function I have to do a hard reboot.
What in the world happens during a Microsoft update reboot that would cause the graphics card to stop sending a signal?  This is very strange.
I appreciate any and all support with this issue.  Thank you
