Automatic disconnect when monitor on power save

It seems that whenever my monitor goes to powersave, my downloads from edonkey & kazaa get disconnected as does the internet.

This is a real pain as I leave my PC on 24/7 in order to get the best from broadband. I cant leave my monitor on all night as the pc is in my bedroom.

What happens is a folder appears on my toolbar titled 'Automatic Disconnect'. This locks my toolbar (I cannot click on anything on the toolbar because of the egg timer mouse icon) so I cant see what the folder actually is.

This forces me to have to restart my PC.

I recently had a power failure and my ADSL modem for BT broadband had to be reinstalled (Q19 drivers etc..).

Is this problem I am having got something to do with it being reinstalled incorrectly?

I am running Windows XP Professional.

Anyone know whats happening?

Thanks

Steve
