    When I'm connected to the Internet, I get the black screen with the Windows XP logo flitting about if I've been innactive for 2 mins. Can I correct it?

    Only when connected to the internet?

    Right click empty desktop.
    Properties>Screensaver - Check what you have it set to.

    Monitor Power.
    Power schemes>always on.
    Turn off monitor>never.
    System standby>never.
    Turn off hard disks>never.
