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

So that's it then

I've been wondering why my monitor's been doing this for ages... every time I stand up it goes blank for about 1/2 a second. I've spent ages checking and rechecking the cables, I thought one might have been loose, but obviously not. I'm suspecting it's the DisplayPort cable that's the cause rather than the monitor itself... but that's easier to check.

It's a relief to know the reason.
