Hello again Ann,

Its been a while.

Probably my fault for not having you make note of it. Not a big deal. BTW, a very smart person once told me, 'The only silly question is one you don't ask'.

It's basically the same procedure:

Do this:

  • Click START
  • Click Control Panel
  • Double-Click Display
  • Click on the Screen Saver Tab
  • In the Monitor Power box Click the Power Button
  • Under the Power Schemes Tab, in the Power Schemes box, Click the Power Schemes drop down menu.
  • Her you have some choices as to what works best for you. Try different ones to suit your needs. Click on 'Portable/Laptop' or 'Max Battery' (your selections may vary, but not by much)
  • At the bottom, Click on OK
  • At the bottom, Click on OK
If you need anything else, you know where to click!

How about a FixYa this time around?

Mike

For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

    I want to watch a movie on my pc but it goes into sleep mode 20 minutes into the movie. How can i change the settings. It displays (auto input interjection) how can i change it?


    Turn off your screensaver from your desktop settings, and modify your power control settings from within control panel. Alternately, you can make a conscious effort to move the mouse every 19-1/2 minutes. I think I would change the settings.


    If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

    How do I stop my laptop A3A from the screen going blank and loud music . I have to press any key to stop it and return to the programme I`m on. In 30 to 40 minutes this could happen 2 or 3 times Ann...


    Hi Ann,

    Laptops have options to prolong battery life that can sometimes be a bit tedious. No problem, to change the settings though.
    Do this:
    • Click START
    • Click Control Panel
    • Double-Click Display
    • Click on the Screen Saver Tab
    • In the Monitor Power box Click the Power Button
    • Under the Power Schemes Tab, in the Power Schemes box, Click the Power Schemes drop down menu.
    • Click on 'Always On'
    • At the bottom, Click on OK
    • At the bottom, Click on OK
    Keep in mind, after doing this, the conservation of battery power is no longer automatic. It's just as easy to change back, if necessary.

    Any problems, additional questions click on the ASK button.
