I'd look at your bios settings. Laptop power conservation is so important
that many laptop MBs have a bios which cuts power to the screen after a
period of inactivity. However, most such bioses allow you to set &/or
disable this feature.
Guessing: Your joystick is attached to the sound card? Maybe a switch to USB
would be helpful in getting the joystick movement recognised by the OS?
