I have XP Professional, which I installed about 5 weeks ago. It was working fine up until about 2 weeks ago, when the screensaver started only coming on about half the time. Also, it never goes into sleep mode. Even if the screensaver didn't work and I could just get it to go to sleep, I'd be happy. I haven't installed any new programs since I first installed XP. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I've done that, it's set to sleep at 10 min, and screensaver at 5. It just doesn't work...

Hi and welcome. Check in the bios setup too. I think there is a power setting that needs to be enabled there.
