Windows 7: Monitor Switches Off Despite Settings

Monitor Switches Off Despite Settings

My monitor keeps turning itself off after a while and I've double, triple checked power settings and everything is set to "Never". The same settings in Vista don't give me any problems.

Is this a bug?

Also I notice than often when opening IE8 I get "Internet Explorer has Stopped Working" pop-up yet the page opens anyway.

Another known issue?

I dropped IE8 beta in its early stages as it gave me too much trouble. Now I'm stuck with it in Windows 7, if I'm not using Firefox of course.

Whats Screen Saver set at? Default is 10mins, Try switching to none!

I also find IE8 is buggy, locks up every now and then, java also dosent work properly etc. Hows firefox run on win7beta?

Firefox runs smoothly, even with various skins, add-ons etc.

The screensavers are set to "None". I tried setting to "Bubbles" and the default one came on anyway, then the monitor switched off when I set it to none. Weird. I guess it's very early days yet.
