Wake up time

How can I get my P.C. to stay awake (XP SP3)
I have not put it into this mode which it automatically adopts after an idle period.
It can take over five minutes to come up to speed.

Check that your power settings are set to "always on", or something similar. Also, you might want to check the actual power profile to see what the individual settings are for shutting down things like the hard drive and the monitor.

How do I check the power profile and alter it?

I have got always on and have not set a screensaver, perhaps this is the reason, if i started a screensaver say Fox would that keep it alive.
