Go to your desktop. Right click properties. Go to screensaver under your screensaver you will see a number. That number tells you after how long your screensaver will go on. Change it to whatever you like. It should be 20-30 now because you told us that.

Also check Power Options in Control Panel.
U can set the the time limit for when ur monitor has to go off, U can even set that option to Never.

ok.. guyz my problem is not that 2 easy...
Power Options ->
Turn Off Monitor - Never
Turn Off Harddisks - Never
System Standby - Never

and Hibernate is disabled.. so no probs. in that side..
however then i thought it could be a problem because of over heating..
so i installed Mother board monitor 5
and my temps at startup were >>
Winbond 1 - 43 degrees C
Winbond 2 - 56 degrees C

and after 30 mins temps are
Winbond 1 - 45 degrees C
Winbond 2 - 58 degrees C

I have uploaded Motherboard monitors results for ya all to see..
Can ya say whats wrong with my settings?
