son has HP vista laptop used for uni course, when left idle it shuts down/hibernates? after 20 minutes, pressing any key restores it imediatly so shuts down is the wrong term, I have set all power options to never but aparently I must have missed one or is it a feature of vista? all suggestions greatly appreciated

Are you operating on mains or battery and have you set the Power Options to suit?
