If I remember the original post correctly (I don't have it in front of me),
one thing that occurred to me was that maybe the issue is with a monitor
setting, not with a general Windows setting.
If I recall, you said you have Vista set up so that it will never go to
sleep. However, your monitor is turning off. So it could be that the monitor
is set to turn off if there's no activity for a certain period of time. So
while it may LOOK like Windows is sleeping, it is in fact still on full
power. But your monitor has gone to sleep.
I'm not going to go into how your monitor setting can be changed because
that probably relies a lot on the specific monitor you have, etc. And I'm
not as familiar with how it's done in Vista as I was with XP.
Anyway, try that one on for size and see what you think.
