This must be real simple, but I can't figure it out. After about fifteen or twenty minutes of watching streaming video (MLB.Com - Red Sox, why watch any other team?) the screen goes dark. I tried changing "Screen Saver" to 120 minutes, and that didn't stop it. Moving the mouse makes the screen come back on, but how can I fix this? Thanks

If you right-click on the desktop and then choose PROPERTIES, Then the Screensaver tab, toward the bottom is a button called POWER, click on it and check to see what time it is set to TURN OFF MONITOR. Lengthening that time might solve your problem.

Thank you so much. I've made suggested adjustments and am quite sure it will work. I'll find out in an hour when I watch the ball game.
