okay this is going on now for several months. i'm not sure if i posted in here before or not.
but i know i am not gettin anywhere on my own. and in the one other forum i tried.
so to see if this gets seen here faster and help for me faster i'll post this strange issue here and hope for a christmas present.
every time i reboot the computer the power config setting will switch to the default
i don't want the default setting i want the setting to all say never.
so i set them all up to say never. as in never turn off monitor.
never allow sleepmode never this never that...
but it always turns it to the setting for turn off monitor in 20 minutes.
thats the only one it changes. it is a pain in the but i can and do go back
and change it every reboot but thats tiresome.
so i got an program that has a setting to tell the config to turn off the or on the monitor. which i thought was great. but the author of the program will not
or has not changed the option, from what he has.
his option is set to turn on or off both the screensaver and the monitor.
i want the screen saver to run but i don't want the monitro to turn off.
i've gone in to the registry and found the location for the power config settings.
i've tried to change it in there but it just won't work it messes up the computer
if i do manage to get the first hotkey out of the way or use a hex editor to change
that first hotkey to never,
so there is something that is messing with it and i don't have a clue what is causing the power config settings to be that way.
this is windows xp pro sp3.
this is not
the computer with the desktop theme issue that is another computer.
thanks for any help.
