Default saving settings on windows xp sp2

just reinstalled windows xp sp2 again not too long ago and for some reason, whenever i try to change some settings like preventing my pc to prompt me for a password after standby, the settings NEVER get saved.

anyone know how i can make this **** thing save the setting changes?

thanks in advance.

Sounds like a registry issue. I would try a repair.
