    How do I make my computer NOT go into standby or sleep mode. I hate it when it does that. I have an IBM Aptiva.

    Or you can go to Start, Setting, Control Panel and go to Power Management and set to NEVER also.

    If none of that works, turn off any sleep functions that you can find in the Bios.
