Power Options

I am having a problem in Widows XP. I have selected the power option for Desktop PC and selected the monitor to go off after three minutes. But it does not go OFF at all. It used to but something has changed.
Any advice would be most welcome

Power Options

Is it just the monitor that doesn't go off or the PC and monitor. The monitor should go into a standby mode, but if its an old monitor (like very old) it might not be capable of doing this. Same goes if the PC (particulally the case and motherboard) is old (6-7 years).

it is just the monitor that does not go into standby. everything is uptodate and it always used to switch off now suddenly it does not. There is an incompatibility somewhere. Sometimes people have had similar problems and know how to fix them. I can find mothing in the knowledge base at Microsoft
