Windows power management question
I want to be able to power down my LCD monitor when I’m away from the computer. When I right click the “desktop/Properties/Screen Saver/Power/Turn off monitor”, and select 5 min the setting lasts for exactly two power up cycles then reverts back to “Never” mode.
Is there a way to permanently set the computer to power down the monitor after 5 minuets of non-use? You’d think that that the desktop route would do it but it doesn’t.
I’m running Windows 2000 Professional. (I know, I really need to get a new system…)
