Well, that didn't work either.

Can you tell me the exact settings you use to accomplish this?

Well, without going through all of my settings... I searched some my old posts (you can too). Here's one that might be helpful (click the image in the post to see larger size):

Huzzahh!!

Finally got it to work.
I exited from MCE and went back and checked my power options.

I think I had made a mistake and set the display and sleep times the same.

I changed it to 2 and 3 mins and tested a Media Ctr recording and it worked!!

Thanks for all your help.

2 and 3 minutes is very short. Something tells me that setting it this short will cause you some problems. I would recommend 10 and 15 minutes instead.

That was just a test.
Didn't want to sit in front of computer for 30 minutes.

What problems would that cause if I left settings?

I'm not 100% sure, but there are some other settings that wait 6 minutes by default. Besides, you wouldn't want to pause the TV and have the PC go to sleep in 3 minutes, would you? That's not enough time to go to the bathroom or get a snack in the kitchen.
