I've a netBook running XP Home SP3 and I wanted to switch off the LCD screen during play back of my mp3 music to extend the battery life.

But when I switch off the screen via a software switch in my netBook whilst MPC is running, it just pops back on again!

It doesn't do this when I run Microsoft's Media Player 9.

I've tried looking for an options switch within MPC for controlling this behaviour and didn't find any.

Does anyone know of a setting I can tweak to get MPC not to switch the screen on?

It looks like it may be disabling the Screen saver too?
