I just installed Windows 7 on a bootcamp partition on a new mac mini with the HDMI out. Everything was fine until I left the machine for a while and it went to sleep. After waking it up I no longer get any video output, either via the HDMI or MiniDisplay port. I don't really want to turn off the sleep function of windows 7. Any hints as to how I could make this stop?

Mac Mini (HDMI), Mac OS X (10.6.4), Bootcamp

    I have a new hdmi mini without bootcamp installed and am seeing similar symptoms. After the mini goes to sleep and I wake it up there is no hdmi video. The machine seems to have woken up fine otherwise - I can see it's file shares on the network - just no video. I've tried nplugging and replugging the hdmi cable and sleeping and reawakening the mini and still no video.

    I tried a suggestion from another thread and found that if I switched the hdmi cable to another input on my Sony TV video was restored, then if I switch it back to the original input it works. It may be a problem with the hdmi hand shaking between the mini and the TV - because unplugging and replugging to the same port didn't work. I'll see how repeatable this recovery work around is.

    I'm contemplating a similar set-up. Do you get 5.1 audio over HDMI when using Boot Camp?
