Monitor power saver not working

By webbr ·
We use W2K with Windows 2003 active directory, on start up a message box is displayed before the logon screen which causes the monitor power saver settings not to work. Is there a way around this? A group policy is setting the message box.

What does this "message box" display? I don't think that AD will cause your monitor power savings not to work.

Are you recieving any error messages?

It took me a while to understand the question but if you're talking about the Windows 2000 Advance Power Managment, here is a link to help you nail and resolve your issue:

The message is to notify the user that the computer is a US Gov. computer and subject to all the stuff that uncle sam can do with it's own property. If you click okay the login screen appears and then the workstation will follow the power settings. Until that it will never go into power save mode.

My advice on Windows Power Manager, in any Windows version, is to deactivate it so it doesn't interfere with your applications and use this energy manager which monitors running applications and internet bandwidth before going into one of its power saving modes:

Click on Software Download on the top banner and fill out the form to download the energy manager.

This is MUCH more user-friendly.

Hope this helps.
