How do I stop my Blackberry going on to standby


I don't know what you are referring to when you say STANDBY option, so I'll include what I know about the password option. Maybe you mean SECURITY TIMEOUT, or maybe your version calls it standby time..

Setting up a password for the device:
Scroll to select the SETTINGS/OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY OPTIONS and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Scroll to select the PASSWORD It should say ENABLED.
For most people the security timeout is set to 1 HOUR.

Setting up the time it takes for the BB to require a password:
Select the line you need to change, and Press [Trackwheel] to access the Menu
CHANGE OPTION should be highlighted Press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select ENABLED and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select the SAVE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
System responds with NEW PASSWORD: input your new password press the <-| key.
System will ask you to re-enter your NEW PASSWORD: input your new password again and press <-| key.
