Then went to the power settings and am unclear what they should be now. They are set up thusly:
turn off monitor after - 30 minutes
turn off hard discs - never
system standby - never
hibernates after - 30 minutes
Lately have noticed that the screen saver is not shutting off
One time the system did not go into hibernation - screen saver ran all night. So am sure power settings need some kind of adjustment. Below my PC specs.
Dell XPS 400 Dimension
XP Pro Version 2002 SP3
Pentium ® D CPU 2.80 GHz
2.79 GHz, 2.00 GB Ram
Thank you so much for any help you can give.
