    I am trying to decide how often OE should check for new email on my XP
    computer. I would like every 9-10 minutes. But right now, I have the screen
    saver set to activate at 5 minutes, computer set to sleep at 10 minutes, and
    monitor set to sleep at 15 minutes. So if I have OE check for email every 10
    minutes or less, will this prevent my computer from sleeping while away? And
    will it stop the screen saver? If it's going to prevent the computer from
    sleeping, I will set OE to check for email every 480 minutes instead.

    The problem is I have no way of knowing whether my computer is asleep or
    not. With the monitor, you know it is sleeping since the screen goes black.
