    Post Thinkpad 570

    I have a IBM Thinkpad 570, which is connected to my AST 5L monitor. The problem is that the monitor goes "to sleep" after about 3 minutes, even though I may still be working on it. I have checked the Monitor set up in Control Panel and everything there is good. I have also checked the Power Management Settings and made sure all options read "never". I have also turned off and on the screen savers as I thought there maybe a conflict there. Please help.

    If you have all the power settings in both display and power management set to always on and the monitor is stilling going into suspend mode

    I would look at the monitor internal controls.
    If it has any. (Menu Button) or the like.
    In addition look at the hardware setup in control panel (If you have it)
    On my Toshiba I have the option of selecting display internal / external /auto

    Sorry I canít be more specific But I donít have a lot of experience with the IBM thinkpad

    Good one, thanks for that Rick. I will certainly try your suggestions. I know my power settings are "always on"/ "never", but I will have look in the hardware setup. Thanks again. Bandy
