    So when my screensaver starts (7 minutes) the monitor will never enter powersave mode (15 minues). I know its the screensaver because when I disable it it goes into powersave mode. I'm running Vista ultimate.

    Any ideas on how to make it go into powersave mode but still be able to use the screensaver?

    Thanks

    Is it a third party screensaver or one of the built in ones?

    Also, does it really matter, its better to have the monitor powered off instead of wasting the backlight on a screensaver. Just turn the screensaver off and set powersave to 7 mins, or whatever.

    It's the built in photos one. I will do that if I can't get it working the way I want, just figured I would try and fix it.
