    I've set my display settings for my monitor to turn off after being 5minutes,
    but when i'm watching a movie or presentation in full screen XP had the
    option not to turn off the monitor. But i can't seen to find this option in
    VISTA.



    It is getting bit annoying that whenever i'm watching a movie, every
    5minutes i've to move the mouse or change the settings everytime

    Is there any solution to this problem? any help whould be appericiated

    It sounds like your problem is internal settings. Turning monitor off and
    when it goes to sleep are 2 different settings. If you open control
    panel,system maintenance,power options you can set when the computer sleeps.
    Mine is set to go to sleep only when power button is pushed or I close the
    lid on my portable. Try there. If it doesn't solve your problem, you can
    always come backk for the pros. I'm just a guy like you. Gary

    its not a laptop, its a normal desktop. I've set my monitor to goto sleep
    after 5mins of being inactive. cus i my pc is on most part of the day, but
    im' not using it all the time.
    so while i'm not on it monitor can goto sleep and thats fine, but when i'm
    watchin a video, windows think that the monitor is inactive and turn off the
    monitor aft 5mins aswell, which is really annoying as it disrupts while in
    the movie,

    there was an option in XP where monitor wouldn't goto sleep in full screen
    mode(either watchin a video, presentation or a slide show) but i can't seem
    to find this option here.
    any help be apperciated

    I also have the exact same problem. I find it very strange that there are so
    few threads about this.

    Anyway, im using a geforce 7800gt, with forceware 101.70 (also happened with
    older drivers) and on a opteron / dfi-expert nforce 4 system. Although i
    dont think its a driver or hardware issue.

    I use media player classic for wathing movies, and i got the latest k-lite
    codec pack installed.

    Any help or workaround would be very appreciated.

  5. Hi,

    I got exactly same issue and no resoltion. Monitor goes to sleep after 2-3 minutes, and come back by moving mouse or any key.

    I tried below steps

    - Installed all different vido drivers for Nvidia GEforce 9300.
    - Installed vista home premium again
    - Checked all power settings

    So seems some issue in vista settings or its a bug.

    Please sned me solution at .

    Thanks
    Utkarsh
