    Anyone else been having this problem? I just bought my mother a new Mac Mini, and it arrived a couple of days ago. Whenever I activate front-row, if I try to start playing music, display pictures or something, after about 5-10 seconds the display enters power-save mode. Whenever I click the menu-button on the remote to go back, the display turns on again. It's an LG-display, L19WT or something like that. Connected with DVI.

    Anyone else been having this problem? I'm thinking I might try to connect the display with a VGA-cable to see if it helps, but I would really want to use DVI.

    Also, how does power-save mode work? Does the Mac-Mini send some kind of code to the display, or is it just the display deciding it should enter power-save mode?

    Thanks for answering. I really hope we'll find out of this.

    Thanks.

    Question: does this only concern LG? If that's the case, we might have to return the monitor for another brand.

    Thanks for answering.

    Have you tried all the standard things like Preferences - Power Mode and then change the display to always on?
