    The Damn thing usually times out in a minute after my computer goes into
    standby or hibernation, BUT NOT ALWAYS. Seems to me the F'ing thing is bound
    to burn a nice dark square into the middle of my monitor after awhile - it
    doesn't move across the screen - just stays in the middle. I've gotten out
    of bed when the alarm went off only to find out that the God-Damn thing has
    been on most of the night. I know this because my DVD2SVCD software keeps a
    log of times for the phases of SVCD creation including the finish time. By
    that, I know that 30 min after finishing it goes into hibernation.

    Is there a setting in the BIOS that will disable that mostly useless so
    called feature ? Or is there some other way ?

  3. Try setting different modes for turning off the monitor and see if one
    works better for you.

    I never suggested it was, but turning off the monitor every time when there
    might be a chance I'll not be using it for more tan 30 mins is a real pain.
    For me anyway - you wouldn't mind ?

    So, your purpose in replying to these posts wasn't to help out - mainly to
    try and get in some shots and tell me that I'm "getting worked up" about
    something that you in your superior way wouldn't be concerned about. Well, I
    hope I have helped you out with some of your "issues" sounds like you needed
    to take some shots at somebody - to try and make somebody feel like crap in
    some way. Well perhaps I've been able to help you out. I hope so.
