energy control panel

Message #1 - Posted 2001/12/07 - Cameron Lewis

This used to blank my monitor before I updated to 9.21 from 9.1 on my iMac DV. Now it doesn't.

Has anyone else experienced this, or can anyone recommend a solution??

TIA

Upgading system software sometimes resets preferences to their defaults. You may have to reset some of the preferences.

Open the Energy Saver control panel and clcik on the show details button. You can then set the time for the display sleep and/or hard drive sleep.

Check the "Energy Saver" control panel. Maybe the preference was reset when you upgraded...
