Power Schemes in XP

  Biggeoff 06:35 01 Jul 07

My power schemes are not working. I have tried different schemes but after 20 minutes the monitor does not switch off as is programmed to do, it just carries on displaying the desktop continuously.

Any ideas?

Well, I checked all the registry settings as per a working PC power schemes which is working fine, but I am still left with this other PC not being able to shut off the monitor whichever power scheme I use. I have tried a different monitor with same results.

Any more ideas??

Ok problem solved Rapscallion.
I uninstalled the VGA driver and reinstalled it from the motherboard cd and it seems to be working fine now.
Many thanks for you help along the way. I certainly learned something about registry tweaks.
