Got this game for Xmas and was just getting into it when the monitor turned itself off (standby mode with no input). All in all I can play for about 5/10 mins before this happens then I have to reboot as turning the monitor back on has no effect, any help here would be great...?

Step one: Update drivers. If that doesn't work, your graphics card sucks. Buy a new one.

Try adjusting the refresh rate for your monitor as well, the higher the better, and turn the settings down on the graphics card.
