Okay, here's a first for me. I've got ten workstations all running win XP pro and I've never come across this.

One of my most recent installs keeps hibernating even though I had 'unchecked' the enable hibernation box. At least I think this is whats happening.

After about 10 minutes or so the monitor shuts off and goes into the screen saver mode. When you move the mouse the screen saver disappears and your back at that 'first startup screen' where you have the option to select which user account you want to log into.

Any ideas on this? I do not want it to keep logging off or going into hibernation or what ever the h*ll its doing!

This particular machine is on my home network and is not part of a domain.
Just a simple network. Only two user accounts on the machine (besides guest and administrator.

Yes,

This is where the 'hibernate' tab lives. I have it 'unchecked' so hibernate is NOT enabled.

Power scheme is 'always on'

Just re-read your post again. If the monitor is shutting off how can the screen saver work. Are you sure it's not just the screen saver kicking in? Check the timing for the screen saver.

I'd rightclick desktop>properties>screensaver and untick the box where it says 'show welcome screen on reactivation' (or something similar - translated).

Your right hipster,

The monitor in NOT phsically shutting off. Its just kicking into
screensaver mode.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
