Windows ME, HP Pavillion - When I program my Power MOptions to Turn Off Monitor, Turn Off Hard Disk, and System Standby (all After 3 Min), the monitor turns off, but the hard disk and system do not. Usually. Any intel?

Apparently, some versions of ME don't have the option to reduce power to the minimum. My ME HELP says:To put more devices in a low-power state during standby

Open Power Options in Control Panel.
Click the Advanced tab, and then set the "Always use least power in standby mode" check box.

There is no such option on my Gateway machine. Maybe your HP can't do it either, but try looking for it. ---911
