Hello,

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've done some research and can't seem to find an answer. I used to have a laptop with windows vista on it. At night, I would either play a long playlist of music or videos as I slept. When the playlist was over, my laptop would enter a power save setting and the screen would turn off. It was set to turn off in 10 minutes, but as long as WMP was actively playing something it stayed on. I liked this setting. Now I've recently bought a new laptop with windows 7. I try to do the same thing, but the laptop screen never turns off as long as WMP is opened. After the playlist, it goes to a screen that has replay and library options. My question is...is there anyway to make WMP act like it did when I was running vista? Thank you so much.

It was NOT THE WMP acting but it were the Power Options Themselves.
