Since I bought my widescreen 22" monitor it will not hibernate unless each time I go into the monitor settings and flip through them and save them. I have done this multiple times but it never 'sticks'. Anyone else had this issue?

Are you saying that when the computer is running (what OS are you using) that the monitor will not turn off at the designated time?

The monitor is an Acer AL2216W. Most of the time when I walk away from the monitor, if I don't go into the settings each time, the monitor will remain on and will not hibernate. Now sometimes it actually will depending if I have completely shut down the computer since I last reset the settings. If I have selected standby sometimes when bringing the computer back up, it will shut off as per the settings. It's like the system is 'losing' the settings when I completely power off. I am running Windows XP.

This sounds like it may be a fault with the OSD. How old is the monitor?

Right click desktop, properties, click screen saver tab, click power settings button at the bottom.

See what the turn off monitor is set to.

Sorry evidently you have done this. Just read first line of your post.

Did you install any software that came with the monitor? If so there may be settings in that program that are overriding the ones in windows.

I think I did install software but I can't recall. I have the box it came in and can look. The monitor is less than 18 mos old. Should I try re-installing if I do have software? What else could I try?
