Stop laptop from logging off

I need to access a friend's laptop using Teamviewer. So far I haven't managed to connect and suspect this is because the laptop automatically logs off after a period of non-use. How do I stop this from happening?

If you mean it's going to sleep, the only thing is for him to change the settings in Control panel. OS?

Sorry, should have said it's W7. It's not going to sleep, it's logging off.

Logs off from TeamViewer or account of laptop logs off?

The account laptop logs off. I can never get Teamviewer to connect.

In spite of your earlier post I think that it is going to sleep. The friend needs to check the power settings.

Now back from holiday.

Woolwell When my desktop goes to sleep, I have a black, blank screen. When the laptop logs of, I have a blue screen with an icon in the centre and a space to enter a password. No password is needed. I just press enter and it logs in.

However, I think you may be right in that the answer will be in the power settings. I'll have a look on Thursday when I'm next at my friend's.
