How to disable Auto Sleep mode in Windows 7

One of the new default features of Windows 7 is the "automatically sleep mode" which puts your system into sleep mode after just 10 minutes. While its a handy power saving feature, it can get a bit annoying.

Here's how to disable or modify automatic sleep mode in Windows 7:

- Navigate to the Control Panel

- If you are using Category mode then change to Small icons (see picture below)

- Once you've changed to Small icons, click Power Options (this brings up the window below)

- Balanced (Recommended) should be selected by default. Click Change plan settings (as per the picture above)

- Click the drop down box next to Put the computer to sleep and select your desired option. I personally set my computer to Never
