Blak screen - help!

  puma22 10:40 18 Aug 2006

Hi, I'm not sure how to describe this so bear with me. Normally, i leave the 'puter on all day. When i return to it, i switch the monitor on, flick the mouse and it goes to the main user screen. I then click on me and off i go.
Now, when i return to the 'puter, switch on the screen, flick the mouse, nothing. It is as if the 'puter is switched off. I then have to hold the on switch to switch off and then reboot.
I'm not aware that any settings have been changed. Have firewall, anti spy and anti virus, all kept up to date and used regularly.
Any suggestions?

Go to Settings/Control Panel/Power Options and have a look at all the options under the different tabs. May be a clue there.

Went into the settings suggested and changed the screen off setting to always on; Seems to have cured it.
