When I do shft + control + the eject button, it should turn off the screen (but keep the computer running) until I want to turn it back on.


The problem is, is that my computer will not keep the screen off. It goes for a few seconds, and then turns back on. Normal sleep is working perfectly fine, and nothing is touching the keyboard that would make it turn on again so I'm not sure what's happening.


If anyone could suggest anything that would be great, but unfortunately I can't take it in as the warrantly has expired.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
