    Default Re: How to stop Windows 8 sleeping?

    Hi sunyekerry,

    Here I only can help in how to disable windows 8 auto sleep mode.

    Windows 8 brings lot of new features and changes in the way Windows work esp the sleeping mode. To disable it or change its configuration, Navigate to Control pane l>> Power options. Then you will see the option of selecting the power plan. By default, The “Balanced” option is checked

    Just on right side of it, click on “Change plan settings”.

    In the settings, just change the time when you want the computer to sleep. You can change it to “Never” if you want to disable it fully. Otherwise change to a value suitable to you e.g. 1 hour, 2 hour etc.

    Save your settings and you are done. Now the computer can download your big files even if you are not on it.
