My computer goes to sleep

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey, when i leave my computer on for a few hours without doing anything to it, it just randomly goes to sleep. I press a button on the keyboard it comes back to life but nothing on the screen, forcing me to manually restart. I jsut wanted to know how do i disable this because i want it to be on all the time. thanks.

Hi codymackay....

you need to change your ''power plan'' setting in vista to ''high performance'' that should solve the problem...
