Hi everyone,

We have 20 Dell LCD monitors got burned out in our student lab. I dont want this to happen again to other monitors. I have an idea to have the monitors to be off after so many minutes when they are not in use.

I logged in as administrator and set the the monitors to turn off after 15 minutes (under power options properties) and they work fine. But then when the students logged in using their own accounts, the monitors didnt turn off. Can anyone tell me how to make these monitors turned off?; no matter who log in to the computers. These PCs are running on XP. Thank you so much!!!
