Default Monitor not powering off

For the last week or two my monitor has not been powering off as it is set
to do in Power Options. In the past this has been cured by changing the
setting (e.g. arbitrarily selecting 15 mins instead of 20 mins) and
re-booting my XP PC (a fairly rare event, as I like it on pretty well
permanently). But lately that's not fixed it.

Any ideas please?

Default Monitor not powering off

Set the screensaver to blank, and set it to kick in at 15 minutes. Then, set
up the power options to turn off the monitor in 20 minutes.

I had the same problem, Terry. On different computers. I think it happened
after a MS update.
