Hibernate refers to the system, not the monitor.

When you put an XP system into Hibernate it will preserve the settings, programs, applications etc at that moment and return to them when brought out of hibernation.

"after 15 minutes the monitor is set to turn off ,but doesnt".

So what does happen to it after 15 minutes?

Anything?

Nothing?

But you haven't answered my question.

I repeat:

Nothing?

hi jackcoms,nothing,computer stays on,as does the monitor

What are your power settings (in minutes) for turn off monitor, turn off hard disk, system standby and hibernate?

  Jackcoms 21:25 19 Sep 05

Why don't you do a system restore back a few days to when you weren't having the problem?

hi jackcoms,turn off monitor after 15 mins,hard disk the same,system standby 15 mins,system hibernate after 20 mins.ill do a system restore as a last resort.
