t61p 6459CTO monitor wont turn off

Hello,

 

Been having a problem with my thinkpad T61p (bios dated 6/6/2008)

I'm using windows XP pro 32bit, fully up to date and have killed all non essential programs from taskman that i can think of and my computer STILL wont turn off its LCD monitor (via energy star count down or FN-F3 shortcut)

 

it shuts off fine for a couple minuets but then randomly wakes up as if i have touched the mouse or a key...I'm thinking it has to be either a service or an application im overlooking but have no idea where to start...i will provide logs upond request.

 

Can anyone help?

Re: t61p 6459CTO monitor wont turn off

everything i could see in bios relating to waking has been disabled from the start.

 

Ubuntu 8.10 has no problems keeping the monitor off until i move the mouse or hit a key, its just windows XP ... is there a way to see what handle or program is interupting the sleep mode on my LCD?
