Well, it will stay awake using an external keyb & mouse, but goes to sleep after 5 secs of inactivity, which sucks if you stop moving your mouse to read (as you know) :) However, someone wrote an app to stop it form going to sleep: http://semaja2.net/insomniaxinfo

You can use both if you remove the casing from the end of the av cables that plugs into the xbox! You dont need to buy anything it doesnt look bad, it stiil functions the same and its free (plus no last minute shopping to find a cable) then just hook up hdmi to the monitor and av audio to speakers and you're done! EDIT!! I just saw your additional details and the cable you are looking for is this http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/v... You can find them pretty much everywhere (futureshop, walmart, best buy, radio shack, online...etc) It has xboxes AV connection on one end and VGA and Composite (red + white) audio on the other Hope I helped!

Yo he comprado de muchas veces ordenadores en los sitios web y siempre he encontrado la mejor calidad, el ultimo ordenador es para una amiga, la verdad es que parece especial creado para ella porque tiene un disco duro con una excelente capacidad de almacenaje y va bastante rápido por su gran memoria y su buen procesador, muy buena compra sin duda.

Shut it down in the usual way and the other monitor that its hooked up to should say " No Signal" Hope this helps.

Should be able to change the settings in the System Settings... Probably under Power or something like that.

Sounds like a cable issue to me, you could try unplugging the cable and then back in, ensuring it's secure. Avoid leaving your computer on it's side; this could be bad for airflow and hard disk drives.
