Hiya, need some help for a friend of mine who has a laptop that keeps wanting to go into standby mode. I know nothing about these and he is about as computer literate as a gnat! He said he has turned all the power options off etc, so any ideas would be great.
It is a Digital HinoteVp?! and is running win98se.
Thanks guys for any help.

Hiya!

Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, double-click Power Management.

Laptops have 2 Power settings, one for Plugged In and one for Battery

Most default settings for Battery are to turn off or suspend within a few minutes. Make the changes there.

There is also a setting in the BIOS, which needs to be accessed during Startup. When you first boot the system up, you will see something that says "press F1 key to enter Setup" or something similar. That is your Bios settings.
