    I too had similar problems before changing the UPS. When we start monitor in between, it draws more power which the battery is unable to provide and end up in a restart. Not sure whether it is the same case with you. Try using another UPS and check.

    Or, trying moving the mouse and see whether it is in sleep mode to revive it.

    this problem should only be associated with crt monitors as they draw a large current at startup which is much more than their average power consumption but lcd monitors don't suffer from this problem.for crt monitors it is much better to put them in stand-by mode which only consume around 5watts because otherwise you will have to get an ups with much higher VA rating(>550VA & even then not sure) if you plan on turning on a 17" crt monitor without affecting the computer.there are softwares which can instantly put a monitor in standby mode or you can use windows power management setting to turn off off monitor after x minutes.remember all these monitor off options are in fact standby options & are different from actually turning off monitor using the switch/button on monitor.

    If you are using Windows 7, you can use " Autoshutdown Restyled " desktop gadget. Has lot of options.
