I had the screen saver interface set to use the "blank only" setting 
instead of actually running a graphic screen saver. Someone else 
suggested that it was actually power management doing the blanking, and 
told me how to shut that off, and I already have tried that with no joy.

This is really puzzling me. I've never had software disobey me before. 
It usually does exactly what you tell it to do, at least it always did 
in Winbloze.

It blanks... and refuses any attempts to tell it not to. It's not really 
a big problem as I'm usually to busy on it to let it get to the point 
where it blanks, I'd just like to figure out why it doesn't do what it's 
being told to do.
