    Hi guys-
    I posted this in the wrong forum (one level up).

    I have been having a problem with my EP121 for a couple days now. when reading an article or something online, the screen has been turning off after 1 min when on battery power, no matter what i do.

    I have created a new power plan. I can verify that the power plan I do have says that when running on battery the screen should only dim after 5 min.

    What can I do, has anyone else had this problem?

    thanks
    chap

    PS.
    it is not "dimming" it is going off completely. it immediately comes back on with any touch, but it makes it really hard to read articles.

    I am SOOOOO stupid. For some reason this was the screen saver making the screen blank.

    In my defense, I am 35 years old and used windows for 25 years, so really how was I to know?

    ...It's so easy on the rest of us when the original poster manages to solve his (or her) own problem!

    ...Good for you!
