    Hi

    My computer keeps switching itself to standby on its own after 20-30 minutes. This is a problem as I do alot of DVD back ups so it ends up stopping the software I use meaning I cant do any back ups whatsoever.

    I have checked in my power settings and it is supposed to be set to always on, so have no idea why this is happining.

    The computer is pretty much brand new from Dell so maybe it is some factory setting.

    Anyway any help would be really appreciated as it is very annoying :confused:
    Thanks
    Lee

    Laptop or desktop? Have you checked the BIOS settings?

    Its a PC and cant see anything in the BIOS that would do it, then again I'm not sure what to look for.

    Thanks
