Internet Explorer closes down automatically

A new trick that Internet Explorer has started, after a period of inactivity, it closes all the windows down. O.K. I can get them back from "Restore previous browsing session" but sometimes that doesn't work and I have to retrieve tabs one by one.

I haven't altered any preferences and it does not happen with Firefox.

How can I stop computer going into any form of sleep mode?

You do not say which OS you are using. In Windows 7, go into Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Change Screen Saver, Change Power Settings, Change when the computer sleeps - enable never.

You should also look at the time you have set before the screensaver comes on.

difarn, thank you so much for directing me to these options which were set by the computer supplier and I have never changed until now. After a year I still seem to need to learn more about windows7.

Anyway I've altered all the settings to never sleep or turn off, hopefully this will fix it.
