    Hi everyone.
    I recently bought a MBP and installed XP on it. However i cant turn off the screen in xp using the power managment, i tried to set it to turn off screen after 1 min of inactivity, but no luck. Is this a bootcamp bug? Any workaround?

    Mine works fine. But try to reinstall your video card drivers from the Leopard DVD. The drivers are there.

    well iam using the newest driver from LaptopVideo2Go atm, could it be that power managment only works with the driver provided by apple?

    I would think Power Management should be universal, but I would suggest you pull the drivers from the Leopard DVD if u have it. It provides drivers for a lot of the components and it's very stable.
