    Windows 7 System goes to sleep mode if not used for few minutes

    I am using Windows 7 in my System. When I do not use my System for few minutes, it is going to sleep mode. I am facing a problem with this. I want it to be active for long time, if I won’t use it even. Please, help me in solving the problem.

    Re: Windows 7 System goes to sleep mode if not used for few minutes

    Hi,

    Windows like all developed and intelligent softwares understood the relevance of power management, The longer the system will run with full features , total visibility and all functions running the computer uses lots of power and all its components , attachments and every part of it gets a full dose of electricity,and other than misuse of power, the components get worn out too.

    To give longer life to the whole system the developers developed the sleep mode where the computer will use minimum of power and will protect all interest.
    But you can always change the mode plan, to do so , follow the process:

    Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Change Plan Settings > and set the sleep time interval ( time after which sleep mode will be activated if computer is not used).
    Thanks.
