Power Schemes Not Working
Actually, the power schemes functionality in Vista Home Premium SP1 are
sporadic at best. Sometimes I can invoke the recommended settings and
they'll take but sometimes they don't and when I think my computer has gone
into a power saving mode, I come back to it and find it's still up and
running. WITHOUT any applications open! Why is this? And how do I remedy it?
Thanks.

Check the scheduler - do you have some defragging, or indexing, or something else.

Thanks Andrew. In Vista, where is the scheduler (which gives you a clue that
I certainly haven't set any scheduled events.)
