Re: how to change the time before my computer goes to sleep when i am not typing?

Hi,

 

See the guide on the link below regarding setting the 'Sleep' time.

 

http://thecustomizewindows.com/2011/01/change-the-time-before-your-pc-goes-to-standby-in-windows-7/

 

You may also need to adjust the time before the screensaver cuts in - if you do, see the following.

 

Open windows Control Panel, open Personalization, click the Screen Saver link in the bottom right and in the following window adjust the 'Wait' time to a more acceptable figure - also, if you don't want to have to log-in after the screensaver, remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save the settings.

 

Regards,
