I'm an avid ME fan and have it on all my machines however the power settings facility just simply does not work (properly). Best not to use it at all in my experience.

Someone may know different!!

I agree with Mango Grummit - it's problematical and best not used. It's often to do more with the motherboard than with ME itself - intel 810 chipsets were a bit fraught with this problem.

A common cause is conflicts between screen savers and the power saver - you could try experimenting by not haveing a screen saver (if you have one) - but all-in-all a facility best left unused.

thanks for help, think i'll try your suggestions & not use power settings, better than all the hassle.
