Okay, here's a first for me. I've got ten workstations all running win XP pro and I've never come across this.

One of my most recent installs keeps hibernating even though I had 'unchecked' the enable hibernation box. At least I think this is whats happening.

After about 10 minutes or so the monitor shuts off and goes into the screen saver mode. When you move the mouse the screen saver disappears and your back at that 'first startup screen' where you have the option to select which user account you want to log into.

Any ideas on this? I do not want it to keep logging off or going into hibernation or what ever the h*ll its doing!

This particular machine is on my home network and is not part of a domain.
Just a simple network. Only two user accounts on the machine (besides guest and administrator.
