Dell Inspiron 1100 screen goes into power saver mode after 45 sec

\015 The laptop screen goes into power saver mode and the screen goes blank and won't come back (except after a long time in screen saver mode if I move the mouse it will come back on, but only for about 45 seconds). However, if I hook up an external monitor that works fine, and I can even press Fn-F8 and get it to cycle between the laptop screen and the monitor, but the laptop screen still goes off after about 45 seconds. I've tried changing the power management settings in Windows XP to where the screen should never go off, but it still does. I'm starting to think it's a hardware problem, but it's frustrating because the screen looks okay for the brief periods that I turn it back on.\015\012\015\012The computer is a Dell Inspiron E1505 w/Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 Service Pack 3\015
