I have explored all of the win system power and changed the sleep after X minutes to several different periods, but nothing seems to increase the timeout period. In fact, it was about 20 minutes before I first attempted to increase, but all I seem to have accomplished is to diminish the period. The display (an AOC several years old) doesn't seem to have any relevant options. Help please.

I think it's actually your disk idle setting, currently set to 15 minutes. Set that to zero and test

neemobeer, thanks for you help. Somehow, in all of the things that I have tried, it seems that the problem is solved. Will give it a couple of days to prove out, and if not, will be back for more ideas
