Default Chrome affecting Display/Sleep settings - 06-01-2009, 06:06 PM

I am currently running the Dev channel of Google Chrome.

Whenever i have Chrome open (usually with gmail idling), my Mini 9 will not turn off the display or sleep. I have the power settings set for reasonable time frames for both the display and sleep, and they work perfectly fine when i have all programs closed. For some reason having Chrome open prevents Windows 7 from managing Display turn off/Sleep properly. I should note i run Privoxy with Chrome for User Scripts, I am not sure if this affects it. Anyone have any ideas how to get Windows 7 to Turn off the display/Sleep while Chrome is running?

Anyone else having this problem as well?
