I cannot turn off Sleep/Hibernate in Win7.

Post by seadancer on Tue 24 Aug 2010, 8:10 am

I am the administrator and only person on this PC, an HP Presario P6520F. I want the power savings to never go to sleep or hibernate. I have changed the setting again and again. I've tried setting it to 5 hours in case it is over-riding never. I have tried several on-line tutorials, but somehow the settings do not change. I assume there is a sleep/hibernate setting somewhere embedded in the software. I also tried to get it to not require a password when it wakes up from sleep, but that setting also does not hold, so I removed the password. Perhaps it's just not letting me do administrator actions, even though the icon shows up with me as administrator. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I may be making a mistake but this didn't 'hold' as well.

Thanks. Probably time for me to check in with HP or MS.

Did you hit "Apply" before clicking OK? My old lap top with Vista had the same problem. I had to click apply before clicking OK. That tutorial only says to click on OK. Good luck!
