Default Laptop monitor turns off when idle - 05-03-2009, 04:57 PM

I'm having an issue where my laptop monitor will just turn off when I am an idle instead of the screensaver kicking in. I tried to change those settings but still the same thing happens. It turns back on when I'm active on the computer again, but I want it to use the screensaver instead. Anyone have any ideas or experience the same thing?

Thanks in advance!

Chances are that your display is set to go to sleep at a shorter time interval than your screen saver. Your display may be going to sleep after 1 minute and yoru screensaver must kick in at 3 minutes of idle time. You need to adjust that in "System Preferences"
