    I have replaced an HP Pavilion notebook running XP Pro with a new HP Pavilion
    notebook running Vista Ultimate. I had been using an external Acer LCD
    monitor with the old notebook. With the new notebook and Vista, the external
    monitor seems to disable both the screen saver and the power plan settings.
    The display simply stays on indefinitely. On a couple of rare occasions I was
    able to get it working correctly, but it does not last. I would like the
    external dispaly to sleep at the appropriate times as set in the power plan.
    This problem did not exist with the XP Pro notebook.
