    I don't think you can do anything. That is the monitor issuing that message. When you first turn on the monitor it's not getting a signal from the computer so goes into it's own sleep mode. Once a signal is received from the computer it works normally.

    Try turning on the computer first. Wait 5 seconds then turn on the monitor. You won't get the going to sleep message.
