Need a logging program: Monitor won't turn off
I assume something is polling the web or keeping my monitors alive but I can't figure it out.
nothing has changed in my setup other than a possible windows update but in the last few weeks my screensaver stays on 24/7.
I played with it today and got it to shut off but i set the screen off time at 2 minutes, just 1 minute after the screen saver.
I am using ultramon on a dual monitor setup. and for a screensaver I am using gPhotoShow. (allows separate/distinct slideshows for each monitor) as I have been for several years.
my assumption is something is now polling the net or doing some activity that is preventing the monitor from sleeping.
So I'm wondering if there is a logging program that I can use to track this down. i did hijack this but that isn't helping (as far as I can tell)
any other ideas?
