    The APM was not enabled and by enabling, it fixed the problem.
    Many Thanks Mr. Bill

    PS
    You would think XP would set this up as default.

    Great. An easy one for a change. :D Thanks for posting back.
    It usually does. But with the number of different machines that exist, nobody's perfect, I guess.
