    Hi,

    I've been having trouble getting my display to fall asleep when playing music in iTunes, what will happen, if i set it to fall asleep in say 4 minutes, is that after this amount of time, when the display goes to sleep, it will turn on as soon as the next song starts.

    I'm using an eMac 1.25ghz and I have 10.3.7 running.

    If anyone could help me that would be much appreciated.

    Well I know what the problem is now (actually I have for a while).

    If you are set up to share music over "bonjour" your display will not sleep. Everytime the track advances on your computer (or someone else's if they are listening to your music) the display sleep timer is reset.

    This is really annoying, what is even more annoying is this doesn't affect the Window's version of iTunes.
