How can you reduce the time of your computer going into standby? I want my computer to stay on my screensaver all night, and not go into standby mode on its own. Is this possible? If so, how do you do this?

Thanks! :tazz:

START-SETTINGS-CONTROL PANEL- POWER OPTIONS.

You can set in here how long before your PC shuts down, switches the monitor off or goes into stand by!

I'm not exactly sure if it's this way in english versions of XP because I am translating it from Dutch.

Desktop>right click>properties>screensaver>change the wait ... minutes to 1 minute if you want it to go on directly. Now go to the power settings under your screensaver. Click the power settings and go to hibernation. uncheck the box ''turn on hibernation''
