This is driving me nutz !!

We have Mamaís laptopís power options set thusly:

Turn off monitor after: 20 minutes
Turn off hard drives after: 30 minutes

After that time the screen is blank and all is fine. Moving the mouse or hitting any key brings everything back.


If I introduce a screen saver, at say 5 minutes, all bets are off. The screensaver kicks in O.K. but after the 30 minutes are up the display returns to the desktop and things stay that way.

There is no monitor shutdown or hard drive shutdown.

No one seems to know whatís wrong. Iím hoping someone here may have clue.
