Ok sorry but another question/addition.. my Dell U2412M came with a CD (you can download too, it's the same stuff)
On it is an install for some power management software Powernap for the screen Now when you install that it also installs some Entech API What the hell is that and do I really need it..

The only way to really find out if you need it is to not install it and see if it causes problems. Software for the screen is sometimes necessary to prevent the screen from causing crashes related to the graphics card, but I have only encountered this once during my time on these forums.

I would suggest that you not install it as it is probably just bloatware. If you have issues related to your display afterward, then you can consider installing. Most of the software that comes with computers these days is useless, and many of the gurus on here just remove it (which is actually what I do) or do a clean Windows install so they do not have to deal with it.

I don't touch Dells anymore due to a bad experience, so I'll have to ask: What does the Entech API do? Does it interface with Power Nap at all?

Documentation leads me to believe Power Nap needs the Entech API interface to run.
