Bsically i,m using a windowsxp laptop, and download bit torrents overnight /during the day .The pc appears to be going into a state of hibernation if used for any length of time, thus stopping any downloading .I have had this issue previously but it stopped for awhile . A few nights ago i also watched the pc through the tv and feel this may have changed some of the pc settings . I have been through the display option on the control panel and adjusted to what I THINK are the corrrect settings, but the pc has done this again this afternoon.

Could anyone out there help please to explain exactly what settingsare required to stop thisannoying thing !

Many thanks
Steve Guy

Could be a screensaver kicking in.

Disable screen saver, hibernation and/or stand-by
