Probably something to do with the power settings:
Control Panel>Power Options>Change Plan Settings>Change Advanced Power Settings>Sleep>Sleep After
I have Plugged In (Minutes) set to 240 (4 hours)January 30, 2009 at 8:14 pm #181953neilt1000Member

I don’t have samsung Battery Manager with Windows 7January 31, 2009 at 8:35 pm #181946RickGr4Member
I just installed Samsung Battery Manager 184.108.40.206 from NC-10 support site. It seems to work fine with Vista. I would try it with Windows 7. It may work. And it does defeat the auto dimming when set to custom.January 31, 2009 at 8:39 pm #181947RickGr4Member
Whoops. Be careful. I am not sure if the Battery Manager program is working properly with Vista.
Update: Guys if I am missing something please tell me. When running Vista the Battery Manager program for XP does not start after a restart. I tried installing another version of Battery Manager from a different Samsung model (version 220.127.116.11) and it seems to work but the programs control panel will not open so I can’t change the settings.
I uninstalled both Battery Manager programs and now the display does not auto dim.August 7, 2009 at 10:10 pm #181955mebibyteMember
You can turn off Auto Dimming by pressing Win+X to bring up Windows Mobile Center. There should be an option to turn off Auto Dimming. I did this on Windows 7.August 7, 2009 at 10:55 pm #181948TCMuffinMember
Good tip…..thank you mebibyte 🙂
As mebibyte, says: if you press and hold the ‘Windows’ key and press the ‘X’ you get the Windows Mobility Center:August 8, 2009 at 12:42 pm #181954sammyoneMember
As you don’t have Samsung Battery Manager installed, you probably use the Widows 7 version –
To adjust screen Blanking in Windows 7 RC
Go to the equivalent of “Start” then –
> Control Panel > Power Options
In the left panel choose – Change settings for the plan then under Turn off the Display
set a realistic figure.. eg 30 mins or 1 hour then Save changes.
