Power Options problem

by ii1aug7f / July 22, 2005 12:33 AM PDT

In the course of putting my apps on a new computer (HP m1195c Media Center 2005) something has apparently corrupted the Power Option function for shutting off the screen after a set number of minutes.

If I set the shutoff time for 5 minutes or less, it works fine. If I set it for longer than 5 minutes, it doesn't work at all.

I have a keyboard button configured to put the computer in Standby, and I have configured the Power button to Hibernate, and they both work. The automatic screen shut off does not.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
