Right click any empty part of the Desktop and select Properties. Click the Screen Saver tab. Is any screen saver selected or does the selection box say None? With a screen saver selected, what is the "Wait" time? What happens if you click the "Preview" button?
When you click the Power options button, what options are selected?
Is Hibernate selected in the Hibernate tab?
Dell Studio XPS 16"
Intel Core 2 Duo P8700
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
My laptop does not seem to be able to go into screen saver, stand by, or other power saving stand by modes when left alone for long periods of time. I swear the screen saver at least worked when I initially got this computer, but I don't know what happened to it now.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
