  1. Miss me much?
    I'd like to apologize to everyone here for my long absence.

    But actually...I come here also because I know that some people here will be able to help me with my little technical problem on my computer.

    Yeah, I know, I'm a selfish little Chinese boy.

    Anyway, my computer seems to hate me now, probably because I've stopped giving its daily doses of TB, and even though I haven't changed anything else, my monitor never shuts down after 10 minutes like it's supposed to, instead after 10 minutes of screensaver time it acts like somebody's touched the mouse or keyboard, and it goes back to whatever was last on my monitor, be it homework, video game reviews, porn, or what not.

    So...does anybody here have any advice on what I can do to remedy this? I'm tired of using my chair back to block the monitor when I go to bed every night. :p

    (Please don't hurt me for coming back with relatively selfish intent. I promise I'll check the other forums, too!)

  3. Stop looking up porn.

    Scrap that, use Bruce's idea.
  4. drape a blanket over the monitor when you're not using it. Also, write "NOT PORN" on the blanket.

    Just turn off the monitor... :)
  6. Yarr...I suppose I deserved that.

    But I'm actually looking to find out what I can do to fix the little problem.
    Under power settings, I have it set to "Turn off monitor after 10 mins" but after 10 mins, instead of turning off the monitor, it reactivates my desktop. Does anybody know why this is?
