Blame of thrones: Those viral vids of PC monitors going blank when people stand up? Static electricity from chairs


I'd have thought that there would be shielding in place in those cables...

I know that the clicker from a piezo-electronic igniter (click to make a spark) will cause my keyboard to shut down and require unplugging and replugging into it's USB slot before it comes back on, but I'm yet to find a monitor that replicates the same effect.
