A user called me with a weird problem today:
HP Compaq D530U
Windows XP SP 1
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.
