Power options issue 06-24-10

When I click on Control Panel and then Power Options and set turn off monitor 
to 20 minutes and turn off hard drive to 20 minutes nothing happens.  However 
if I change those settings to turn off monitor to 1 minute and turn off hard 
drive to 3 minutes it works every time.  I do not know what the problem is or 
how to correct it, so any help would be greatly appreciated.  You should also 
know that no changes to my system have been made since this problem started 
happening.

The turn off cannot be executed until the computer is not running anything 
for the amount of time you select. Therefore, when set at 20 minutes 
something is running in the background. Do  you have a virus scanner running 
when the system is idle? Norton?

Optional lines
I have a report which prints a Process Sheet for a plating company. There is a sub-report to handle a variable number of operations, but certain lines on the main report are optional. An example is the line to print the Number Remaining if there has been a partial despatch. Where there is only a line of text to print, I have enabled the field's CanGrow and CanShrink properties, but this does not work where there is more than one field on the optional line. This can happen because of different field alignment or font size for example. Would the best solution be to create an extra...

Optional attachment resize in Outlook 2010
I've spent the last hour searching for the answer to this problem - how to regain the option to resize photo attachements in the beta 2010 version. Every avenue I explore comes to a dead end. In 2007 there was an Attachment Options button on the Include tab, but this has disappeared. Somewhere it said that the option had been moved into the File tab, but I can't for the life of me find it. I know from various sources that the options have been reduced from three down to one size, so it must be in there somewhere! I can't find it either. It was a very useful feature, ...

Data Type Options
When using the Import Spreadsheet Wizard, I would like to be able to change the data type of one of the fields being imported. However, the Data Type option is greyed out and inaccessible. It gives the data type of double by default, even though I formatted the cells in the spreadsheet with text formatting. Double would be fine for most of the records but there are a couple that aren't in double format(they have text and numbers mixed), giving me a data type conversion error when I import the spreadsheet. Any suggestion on how to get around this or how to make the Data Type Opti...

Access 2007 conversion problem 10-15-07
I have an application that was developed under Access 2003. We purchased Access 2007 and loaded it on our pc - 2 gig memory and a intel xeon processor, running vista. Upon opening our application (split database), the main form asks for a query parameter (EntryHeaderID) 2 times and then brings up the main form. It takes about 2 minutes to bring up the main form. I have never seen this error before - does not happen under Access 2003. Clicking on the office button takes a minute or more, it just seems that everything about 2007 is soooo slow. Is there anything we need to do to get th...

Major instal issue
I have Money 2002 installed, and have had for some time.

Both Money and the viewer work fine, but no matter if I cancel or ignore the message, it keeps coming up roughly once every two seconds. The real issue though is this: since this started happening, I've been unable to install or uninstall anything else that uses the Windows installer (including trying to uninstall Money to solve the issue), as it fails saying t...

CRM Hardware Requirements 06-09-04
Hi Everyone, Hope you are having a great day/night. I've got a server with RAID I, two hard drives. And I'm looking at implementing CRM. The specs says 'SCSI RAID 5 with 3 hard drives' are required.

MRP issue
For some reason we have a part in MRP that is not quite working as predicted. It suggests buying more items than we have demand for and ends up with 6 extra units. <img src="http://ef2bhg.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pbuKxWwm3MsELispW6MjBW-aFRUrb9OJwxTmQY0lm00NV6z26yviPK69am3kqiKAZrJSu3QzaZJjsR62NhfBNDw/workbench.jpg"/> Any idea why this would be occuring?
