Ok. … I’ve now got some instructions for doing this, and will try to work through them when I get the time here.

 

Will keep you posted, and thank you!

I believe you need to go into your computer’s Power Management settings and fix things there.

Subject: Problem With Laptop Computer Sleep Functions

Hello, everyone.

 

A few days ago, I started noticing that my Dell Lattitude Windows 7 laptop no longer goes to sleep when not in use.  I have the monitor set to turn off after a few minutes of non-use both on battery and AC power.  The same goes for the entire computer itself.

 

I have gone into the sleep timer menu and verified that everything is set the way I would like, and made sure to save my changed settings.  But my computer still runs constantly now, even when it is not being  used.

 

I realize that this is likely not a Jaws problem, so I hope it is not considered to be too “off topic” for this list.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
