stop windows from going into sleep mode

is there a way to stop windows from going to sleep?
i tried to check if there is a setting for this, but no.

during presentations or discussions, my computer goes to sleep & then i have
to login again.
this is a headache, how can i overcome this issue (win xp prof),
i am willing to write a small .net tool to keep my computer awake if i have
to.

regards,

Amie

Hi

This is more a Windows forum question, but this is my suggestion:

Go into CONTROL PANEL & open POWER MANAGEMENT options.

Choose 'NEVER' for the monitor/hard drive & system standby, click APPLY &
then click OK

Now, your computer wont switch off your monitor, hard drive & won't go into
sleep mode.

I hope this helps.

This is part of this thread:
stop windows from going into sleep mode
http://bytes.com/topic/visual-basic-...nto-sleep-mode

This is the reason that the user gave:
I have Windows 7, and if I don't keep continuously using my computer, it goes to sleep. Now I have to restart my computer, put in the password and start again. This is very annoying. I hope you can help me
When you hit the REPORT link you were told that reporting a post is for SPAM, harrasement and other violations of the Bytes guidelines.



It not a way to draw attention to your problem because you are impatient.

Next time you do it I'll just delete the threat for not following the rules after you have been warned.

Tlhintoq, This thread is closed. It's not even a part of Bytes!
I think the OP was confused as to why they couldn't post.
