When I installed BOINC and the boinced SETI on WIN2K, my monitor stopped shutting off after 20 minutes as specified in my power-management settings. Looking at the settings, they're still there, too; something about running the BOINC screensaver or the SETI code is blocking the power-management monitor shutdown.

Works for me (at least most of the time). I always thought this was a windows problem. Setting the blank time in the screensaver to something longer than the monitor power time seems to help a bit.

Interesting idea. I had the default 0 (and go to blank screen not checked) there for BOINC, so I've changed that, and we'll see. Thanks for the suggestion!
