Recently, I have added net frames to the system to allow a news service to operate. Since that time, if I don't use the computerr it shuts down. I prefer to have my computer on 24h--with screen saver. There has beena change but not sure how to fix it. Also, closing the news service doesn't help the system still shuts down. I tried to change the control panel power settings, but that alo did not work. I'm using XP Professional. Any help appreciated.!!!

Regards

Steve

This could be due to a lot of reasons, your processor fan may stop causing your computer to shut down. Some newer computers decide that if they are unused for so many hours they will just shut off. You may have a dodgy power supply. I could probably go on for a while. I don't know why installing Net Frames would cause a problem though.
