Stop automatically going into Sleep mode in Vista
Posted 05 April 2007 - 06:30 PM
How can i stop Vista to go into Sleep mode automatically after a while of not doing anything?
I would like it to stay on overnight from time to time...
I was downloading the C&C 3 Demo last night and turned out it shut itself down after a few minutes, stopping the download... *sigh*..
(At least i THINK it's going into sleep mode... it looks as though it's switched off but the light in the "power on" button of my PC is flashing and when i press it it takes a few seconds before it comes back to the login screen)
How can i stop this from happening?

and than click on change plan settings
than click on change advanced power settings
you will find it in there
and if i were you i would change the settings for the hard drive shut off to never
because if you don't you hard drives will shut off after so many mins or hours
and that is not good for you HDs
