Howdy ppl, is my first post :)

There seems to be a problem everytime i shut down my computer after changing energy saver it reverts back to the same place every time. It starts off as 20mins the computer goes to sleep and 10mins for the screen to turn off. no matter how many times i change it and lock it it always reverts back to the same position. any suggestions?

try Zapping your PRAM - instructions are in this thread http://forums.appletalk.com.au/index.php?showtopic=6173 about 3/4 of the way down.

What about other settings like date and time too? If your machine is not preserving preferences (settings) your PRAM battery may just be flat. Without knowing some details of your computer it is hard to provide any more advice than we have done. If it is a brand new machine a flat PRAM battery is unlikely. If it is an older machine then this possibility becomes a probability. Let us know. (EDIT: is it the quicksilver or power book?)

cheers, kim
