hi, over the last few days it wil not go to sleep, i have set it to, shutdown the HDD after 15 minutes, and the screen to go off after 20 minutes...but it just stays on, it is running XP. as far as i know i have not messed with anything....I have tried resetting it, now and again it will go off, but not very often, any idea where i can look next.......thanks

You can't set the hard drive to shutdown before the monitor..... doing so would mean that the monitor wouldn't know when to go into standby.....

Try setting the monitor to standby after 15mins, the hard drive and System Standby at 20mins.....

Or you could set the monitor and System Standby to 15mins and the hard drive to 20mins....
