For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hello, Welcome To JustAnswer Thanks & Regards Sibu
which operating system you are using ?
do you have an answer for me?
goto Start>>Control Panel
click classic view
double click power options
which power plan is selected there ?
under balance click change plan setting
there change sleep time
and turn off display to never
I already have it set to never.
click change advanced power setting
My computer is set to thee settings. It still turns off.
there change the hard disk power off time
in advanced setting
what do I set it to?
change hard disk time to never
There isn't a "never" setting. Just minutes
Under "sleep" setting is "never"
Need time out...be back in a jiffy
are you still there??
Sibu, you won't earn a bonus with this lack of response. It's been over 15 minutes since you responded.
yes ..I w as on a call
increase the minutes upto 60
then check again
I'm sorry I didn't notice you were back. I set it at 60,000. Is that what you mean? That would set it at a 10 hour turn off, wouldn't it or am I looking at it incorrectly?
yes that is fine
Check power options again. Sleep setting went back to never as before.
and minutes set at "0"
change minute to 60
did that. now what? 60 minutes means the computer turns off after an hour? I don't want that. I want it to stay on until I turn it off.
if it remains idle for 60 min
what do you mean "now" and "if it remains idle for 60 minutes"
I meant, what do you mean "no"
ok sir ..If you keep idle the computer 60 min or what ever you set there ...hard disk will shut off
after that period
So, if I set it to 60,000 minutes, will it stay on for 10 hours? I did change the settings, but after I clicked "ok" and went back, the setting ws back to never and "0" minutes. BTW, it's "ma'am" and not "sir" <G>
no 1000 hrs
for 10 hrs set 600
never was good at math! BTW, USB Selective suspend settings...should this be set to "enabled"?
but not related to main problem
It was set to "disenable" I change it to "enable". What is main problem....sleep setting?
Checked settings. It's holding at 600 minutes and to sleep after 10 hours.
the USB ports will get power or not
What do I need to do to USB ports? What does that mean the "USB ports willl power or not. I'm not a computer expert.
then leave it ...its a bit technical not related to ur main problem
okay...but main problem is???
change the power setting to 600
and press Ok
and check by giving computer time for idle
And if this doesn't work I'll be back in here with you or someone else. Is there a reference number, etc. to this chat session?
reply to above link
copied the link.
when do I accept before or after idle time is checked?
after check you can do it
Thanks. Shall I exit now?
