    A user called me with a weird problem today:
    PC Specs:

    HP Compaq D530U
    Windows XP SP 1
    512 mb
    40gb
    2.66GHZ

    While he is working on his machine, it suddenly goes into power save mode, when he logs off or shuts down the machine, it goes into power save mode.

    I came up and made him admin on the local PC and changed all the power option settings to ‘never’ then removed him from the admin group and logged off

    I got him to log on and log off and the problem persisted, then I made him admin again and it was okay. So as a temporary fix I’ve made him administrator of his machine so that he can do his work, this is a dangerous thing to do so if anyone out there has ever come across this, your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
