Re: How to keep computer from going to sleep

Deb, assuming you are using Windows 7,


Goto your desktop and right-click then choose personalize. In the window that appears, choose screen saver.


Near the bottom of this new window that appears choose change power settings.


With RECOMMENDED SETTINGS chosen, click on Change Plan Settings.  Where it says Put the Computer to Sleep select NEVER.


Hope this helps Smiley Happy

Re: How to keep computer from going to sleep

I deleted the HP Officejet Pro 8610 printer and fax from the devices list under the Windows10/Settings/Devices page.  I then added the printer back to the list at the same settings page.   It seems to be working now.
