When the monitor power settings are
set, /apply/off.  The pentium 3 will correctly turn the monitor off - for a while.  But after a while it no longer
works, the monitor stays on until manually turned off. When the time setting is changed, it will again work ok for a while.

Have no clew as to cause. Is there a fix for this?.   Thank you!  al

Have you got a screensaver? If so, does the screen saver start?

Do you physically turn the monitor off when you switch off the machine? If so make sure that you switch the monitor on *before* switching on the system. Windows forgets all plug and play devices that are not present on system start, including PnP monitors.

Make sure your monitor is on before your computer boots up. This way Windows will know that the monitor is there, and it will retain control.

ox316, please reject lord_bovine's "answer" since it just repeats my comment. Rejecting the "answer" will open the question again which will let more techs participate.

Have you tried uninstalling/re-installing the software ?

Right click 'My Computer', then 'Properties' then 'Devices'.

Find your monitor display right click that and choose 'Remove'.

Windows will restart and install the correct software.

LBovine's answer is not relevant since the
monitor is always turned on before computer.

Bartsmit, no screen saver is used.
KAbbott, you have a good point, yours maybe
the answer I need.

Thank y'all!    al

Ox,
If his answer was irrelevant, why did you accept the answer?
