    Sleep mode


    As of this morning my computer goes to sleep every 3 minutes. I have everything on "never"
    The screen saver setting is set on "none"
    Is there anyway to stop this from happening?

    Hi

    When you say it is going to sleep, is that all of the PC, the display or something other? Can you be more specific please and also complete your system specs? :)

    If you search for Power Options>Edit Plan Settings>Change Advanced power settings, check these settings and let me know.

    I have a similar problem. I have changed settings and told the computer to sleep after 30 minutes. It still sleeps in about 3 minutes. I have changed all the settings I can find to change, adjusted the sleep time, told it never to sleep, etc but it still sleeps and I have also told it not to require a password on waking up; it insists on my password. I am thinking it must be related to something in the registry and I don't know what or where to find what to hack! Any Ideas???? I think it has something to do with the settings that HP used in setup but cannot be sure. The computer was upgraded from Windows 7

    Hi, a suggestion to alleviate your immediate difficulty in using your PC (maybe!) is to install 'Don't Sleep'
    Don't Sleep 3.75 Prevent Shutdown, Stand By, Turn Off, Restart

    Assuming this works in your case, it would at least give you more time!

    I had same problem until this morning when I posted a query about it on here. Then - embarassingly - found an answer in another thread, so I'm just passing on CaesarMagnus's tip: apparently, if you switch on using the 'Power' button, rather than the mouse, it stops the (rather maddening) 'sleep after 2 minutes' idleness' syndrome. Don't know why, but it's worked for me So just posting here in case it helps anyone else.
