Default Monitor shuts down during user switching

I just installed windows xp pro SP2 on an old 366 Mhz pavilion I had sitting around....The system is running incredibly good, in fact better than I could imagine it was going to....Just one problem that I have never encountered before; Every time I switch between user names the monitor shuts down or goes to standby and then comes back up......Anyone else encounter this problem before???? Any Suggestions??? I know that I am asking a lot of this small machine but I am very very satisfied with the 366 MHZ , 128 MB pc100 RAM machine's performance so far.....Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions...Have a great day!!!

Are you sure its going to standby mode ? Possible bcuz of lesser resource its taking up time to show up the screen. Just a guess.

what is the type of monitor? LCD/CRT?
Size of monitor?
Check to see if power saving modes on the "screen saver" tab is set to presentation, which means the monitor is never shut off.
