    check what his computer is specified as under device manager if it is specified as acpi i dont really know how to help. but if it is listed as something else, most likely standard pc then goto
    display properties->screensaver-> power and make sure if there is an option for advanced power management that it is set to enabled

    hope this helps!! :cool:
