    :confused: Does anyone know why my screensaver doesn't kick in? And the Power scheme that I have set (Home Office) doesn't kick in either!? This has been happening for about a month now ... sometimes it does work but most of the time it doesn't. And what is the best power scheme to have set?
    (I have an HP a1224n that I bought less than a year ago).

    Thanks in advance!!
    :)

    What I would try to do is to make sure you have your screensaver set to something like flying pipes or something like that. Then set the time to like 2 minutes and time it. Make sure you dont bump anything and see if the screensaver kicks on.

    The power scheme is up to you really. If you feel you want your monitor to turn off 10 minutes after your screensaver kicks on then do that. Same with your harddrive. Its all about conserving energy.
