Hopefully you can help me with a small problem I have with my Acer 3690 laptop (XP Media Centre).
A few weeks ago my screen kept on going to sleep as though the Power Options had been adjusted to sleep after only 30 seconds inactivity. This is really annoying as I can no longer watch DVDs due to this problem.
To make matters worse the Power options in Control Panel have some how been disabled. Double clicking them fails to open the Power Options window. this seems to be the only thing disabled in the Control Panel.
My laptop only has one user account (Admin) but making another user account with Admin privs still results in the same issue.
Is there a specific registry key I can export to check for any incorrectly set policies?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
