I have tried everyone's suggestions and settings to resolve this
and none of them worked with my IO, then through shear determination,
and a bit of luck I finally solved this problem with Windows ME.
OK here are my settings:
The Display adapter is Trident CyberBlade i7 (47)
With the V5 BIOS, My bios settings are:
Power Management: User Define
PM control by APM: NO
Video Off Method: DPMS Support
Video Off Method: Doze
Doze Mode: 1 Hour
Suspend Mode: Disabled
*** PM EVENTS ***
PRI INTR ON
IRQ 12 PRIMARY
All the rest of the PM Events Off or Disabled
save settings and reboot
In Device manager under System Devices, open the properties of the "Advanced Power
Management" Device and select "disable in this hardware profile".
this will turn power management control back over to the BIOS.
save settings and restart.
My IO goes into doze mode after 1 hour, the backlight turns off and my
USB network adapter stays active.
