daju.... have go at this...

Control Pannel, powermanagement, and if its on always on, select to never and turn it from 15mins to never on each drop down box....

IF its already set to that, do it the otherway around.... Turn them all from never to 15 mins and Always on to home desktop use....

the machines i have used this with seems to work, a bit like a toggle... don't ask me why it works (if it works for you)
