    For the week or so I've noticed my monitor going to sleep after 20 minutes. From day 1, I've had my "power options" set to "never, never, never" go off, preferring to hit the sleep button myself when I'm not around.
    Also, under PwrOp advanced, the box next to "prompt for password" keeps re-checking itself.
    I keep my PC immaculate and have no other issues.
    The only newer app that's running in the background is Mamutu and I've searched thru it's options to see if I could find anything that might be causing this.
    It's not a big deal, but like many of you, I just don't like things not working as directed.
    Any thoughts on what's happening and/or how I can correct it will be appreciated.

    I am having the exact same issue. I have also tried changing the setting through the registry, but they keep returning to the same 15,30,20,Never and 5,5,5,Never...
