    monitor won't go in standby

    I'm running windows xp pro and my monitor is not going in standby after 5 minutes anymore. I went over all the stuff that I installed within the last couple weeks and nothing out of the ordinary is installed. I'm using the nvidia 7600gs video card. anyone got a clue?

    that's the first thing I tried. in the power options the computer is set for "always on" and only my monitor goes on standby after 10 minutes. but it's not going in standby mode.
