    Hi Mel:
    Thank you for your interest. Looking at the interrupt list, i tried calling int 09 and is working OK.
    Again, thank you, you gave me the ideas where to look....

    I was afraid that would happen. Int16 is a software interrupt
    and looks like the wakeup is triggered by a hardware interrupt.

    There are some small programs that toggles things like CAPS
    LOCK and NUM LOCK. $INLINE the program to perform a toggle and
    see if that will wake up your monitor.

    If that doesn't work, I'm all out of ideas.

    I think I just accidently lied. (This is about an hour later).
    if that doesn't work and IF you have your mouse driver loaded,
    try one of the function of INT33 to do something with your
    mouse.


    Cheers

    Mel: I found that Function 05h must go in AH.
    I wrote a little program, that simulates the "A" keystroke in a close loop with some delay.
    It works fine (I can Inkey$ that letter) but the monitor won't wake up until I real input a key.
    Do you have an idea why this happens ? it seems that the BIOS dont see this procedure..

    You may want to try Int16h Function 05h. This simulates
    a key press by inserting a character in the keyboard buffer.
    CH = scancode of key and CL = ASCII code of key.
