I've had that 'screen blank with only mouse cursor on sleep/standby' problem with ASPEED graphics, the latest 1.01 driver solved it for me.

Hello Lakshmikanth,

Checking the specification of your processor; Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1220 v3 (8M Cache, 3.10 GHz) Specifications, it does not have graphics built-in, meaning that your issue might be related to the video card or graphics solution that you are using.
