Go to your power option properties then in power scheme make sure power schemes are set to always on and that all the setting are set to never then go to advance and make sure that the power button is set to off and that the options are left blank then go to hibernate and enable hibernate support aslo go to your screen saver set you screen saver to 60 minutes this should helpby right clicking your desk top and going into properties and the click on the tab that says screen savers.
