Turning off hibernation mode

My PC usually goes into hibernation mode after every 20 or so minutes when I'm not using my computer. If you recall from my "Right, Should I get Brawl?" thread, you might remember this. Anyway whenever my computer goes into this mode, it cuts off things like Nintendo Wi-fi. I can prevent it from going into hibernation mode by occasionally moving the mouse, but it's still a hassle.

I was told you can turn this off in My Control Panel, but I don't know where to go now. >_> I use Windows XP.

Thank you.

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

Well, I looked into this and found out how to change the settings, hopefully.

Control Panel-->Power Options-->Power Schemes

From there you can customize the settings for when things turn off after time, I believe.

EDIT: Wait, that's not right. Instead of the Power Schemes tab, go to the Hibernation tab. For some reason, my computer won't let me allow it, but if it's already on for you, you should be able to disable it.

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

You're welcome.^_^

Let me know if it doesn't work so I can look again.

Incidentally, I can't enable hybernation mode on mine because I don't have enough free memory.

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

I had turned off hibernation earlier once in the week and I just noticed that my computer had went into hibernation mode.

I looked back and it was still unchecked. There is also a "Apply" button, which I did not click before. Well I checked it, then unchecked it and then I clicked Apply before hitting OK now. Still, I do wonder if this is the right way to turn off this mode....

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

Actually, try my first instructions before I added the edit. It may be turning off the hard drives.

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

But isn't that for adjusting the times when it would go into hibernation mode?

When I do go into the hibernation mode tab, there is a small description of the mode. It seems to fit my description of the mode I've been experiencing.

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

Instead of turning it off you can change the time it goes into hibernation.

As an example, my current power settings (still under the power schemes tab):
Turn off monitor: after 1 hour
Turn off hard disks: after 1 hour
System standby: after 1 hour
System hibernates: after 2 hours

Re: Turning off hibernation mode

My power options doesn't seem to have those listed in my power schemes tabs.

Well I did went to Always On and set monitor to never turn off... not sure that will help. Mind taking a screenshot to help guide me? I'm more of a visual learner......

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Hope that helps.
