What you need to do when you are on your desktop is right click your background go to the screen saver button on the bottom is a power saving option click that, click the power scheme button make sure that the power scheme says home/office desk under it there are some rows that says turn off monitor, turn off hard disk, and system standby make sure all thoes options say never Now that that is done at the end there is a hibernate button click that there is only one option that says enable hibernation make sure that it does not have a check in the box If it does click it off click ok and u should not have this problem anymore...
