    Hi all.
    In Windows XP when i create a new task with the task scheduler and i check
    for that task the option to wake up the computer when it's sleeping all is
    going fine, that is the computer wakes up at the specified hour performing
    the task and the monitor, as perfectly expected by me, remains off without
    waking up unless i move the mouse or i use the keyboard.
    Instead in Vista when i perform the same operation on the task scheduler the
    computer wakes up at the specified hour performing the task but waking up
    also the monitor that displays a black screen and the mouse pointer and it
    remains in this state until the task ends.
    This is not logic, i want the monitor to completely remains in standby
    exactly as it happens in Xp, unless it's me who uses the mouse or the
    keyboard. Why waking up the monitor not saving power only to display a black
    screen with a mouse pointer??
    Is this something related to my settings or it's a general Vista bug, is
    there a way to correct it?
    I am using a new hp computer and a new monitor so they are all clearly
    compatible with all the last ACPI standards, for the monitor connection i am
    using the DVI interface. I have the same problem on my Vista laptop.
    Thanks a lot for reading me and trying to help me.
    Best regards
