Please help! I currently have my computer configured with the following power
options:

Turn off monitor: After 15 mins
Turn off hard disks: After 10 mins

System standby: After 30 mins
System hibernates: After 1 hour

However, I will return to my computer hours later and it will return to my
desktop, never having entered standby. I have been looking through some of
the posts on the website, looking for some help, but I have not had any luck
so far. I have unchecked the option to allow the NIC to bring the computer
out of standby, but I am still having issues with this. Are there any other
programs that could be running on my computer that could be leading it to
believe that it is not idle? HELP! This is really driving me crazy!

Hi, I think your laptop stayed in standby mod only for 30 minutes,after
hibernation takes over. Disable or put hibernation for longer time. You can
also set it for an option ("When I close the lid"-Standby) in setup action of
power saver,and the monitor should not be turned off faster then HDD.
