When I go away from my computer, and leave it on deliberately, the monitor goes black and the green light blinks continuously. I don't want the computer to go off at all unless I turn it off, because I tape a radio program that is on for at least for one hour. I want the program to keep recording until I turn it off. How do I stop the computer from closing like this when I am not with it?

The question is, is it actually turned off? It may just go into a power-saving mode.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Power Options. I would change the settings to:

Turn off monitor: After 20 Minutes
Turn off hard disks: Never
System standby: Never

The monitor being off should not affect the recording at all.
