I cannot turn off Sleep/Hibernate in Win7.

Post by seadancer on Mon Aug 23, 2010 9:10 pm

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.

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!
