Having problems with your Gateway GT5468 Desktop PC ?

Is there a way to shut off the sleep mode on the computer (for watching a movie?) So we do not have to get up and move the mouse.


Answers :

For Windows-based PCs, you can right-click on any empty spot on the desktop and select "properties." Go to the "Screen Saver" tab and then down at the bottom, click on the "power" button and change the settings there. It should be pretty self-evident. You can always go to the other tabs and look at the options there as well. You might also consider disabling the screen saver (back on the "screen saver" tab, just select "none" from the pull-down menu.)
You can usually find the options for sleep mode in the "Control Panel". When you get to the control panel, find the "Power Options" Icon, and it will open up and allow you to change to hybernate/sleep/monitor shut off times to your needs. I hope this helps
