    hello, this is my first post but i've been lurking here for awhile. I have a samsung 170s 17" LCD monitor, and am running panther. The problem is that the sleep mode (power save they call it) is set to activate after like 5 minutes, and it keeps kicking in in the middle of movies and stuff. I'd like to turn it off or something but I can't figure out how. There is no control in the monitor's menu, and samsung's site doesn't say anything about how to do it in osX. I emailed samsung and they basically told me to talk to apple. I decided i'd try here before I go to the big A. Anyone know how to do this?

    I agree with the post above :D

    I always have it turned of because of the same problems you mention Cooncat (cool name BTW), just turn your monitor of with the powerswitch if you are away!

    thanks guys, I feel really stupid now. I don't know how I didn't see the energy saver preference before. I was looking for it too! I must have had a harder day than I had thought, hehe.

    Thanks people
