After unplugging/reconnecting the monitor while it was on, the blinking seemed to stop when the PC shutdown/slept!
I will test it more to see if it will stay in standby correctly, but now everything looks pretty good.
I can recreate the blinking by simply turning the monitor off then on again when the computer is either on or off/sleeping (could somebody test this?), and the blinking will occur when the monitor goes into standby mode (if not already there) and it won't stop until I disconnect/reconnect the monitor while it is powered on and in use (blue LED). It seems that as long as I don't touch the power button, the monitor will standby correctly!
Thanks guys! Hope everything stays working correctly.
EDIT: Unfortunately it seems like the good news from before wasn't actually accurate
.. Now the monitor is back to its blinking ways, however I can sometimes stop it from blinking by disconnecting/reconnecting the DVI-D cable, but the effect wears off after a couple of hours or sooner. Overall, it is really quite finicky, sometimes it will sleep (after removing/reinserting the cable), sometimes it won't, etc. Also, now sometimes when unplugging the DVI-D cable when the monitor is in use (blue LED) it will not go red but blink..so I really don't know what causes it at this point.
I have tried a couple of different dual link DVI-D cables and all have has this problem, but if there is a specific one that you recommend I'd be interested in trying it.
