[Perhaps your settings are different, though].

I'll have to test that on MA3 when I get a chance. Or, Jim can tell us what the sound is supposed to do under various conditions.  
I can confirm that on a WXP Pro system with MA3 installed, and the screensaver set to activate at 1 minute, and the monitor to turn off after 2 minutes (and no other power-saving settings), after an hour the bubbles are still merrily burbling in my speakers.

That seems, to me, like normal and expected behavior.

But perhaps Xylem was reporting a different set of conditions?
