Default XP Power Saving Options Buggy with External Monitor - 02-27-2009, 12:05 PM

I'm running an external monitor in "extended desktop" mode with the external monitor being the primary display.
I have Windows Power Options set to shut the displays off after 10 minutes.
The problem is that sometimes (about 20% of the time) the system does not turn the displays off. The rest of the time it works fine.

Is this a Windows issue or Dell Mini issue? Any solutions or fixes?
