    How do I prevent my computer from going into a deep sleep?


    How do I prevent my computer from going into a deep sleep after inactivity?

    I have hybrid sleep off. Whenever I try to wake it up, it doesn't respond to any of keys except for the power button. That leads me to thinking it's been shut down, crashed, or is in a deep sleep. I don't think it has crashed.

    Do I need to disable hibernation? If so, how do I turn it off permanently?

    Question, do you ever want to use sleep ? Check your Power Options in control panel for settings to this with sleep for PC and monitor ?

    Disable Hibernation

    Right-Click Start Menu ->Click the Admin Command Prompt -> Type powercfg -h off -> Hit ENTER

    To enable type: powercfg -h on
