Question about HP Computers & Internet
What I believe is your problem is that your computer is going into a power saving mode called a "Sleep state".
If this is the case you should be able to "wake it up" by pressing the sleep button.
HP/Compaq usually put one on their keyboards. It has an icon on it the shape of a crescent moon and is usually labeled "Sleep" Press that to give your pc a wakeup call when it is asleep. Or if you want to put your PC to sleep to save power when it is awake.
If your like me you probably don't care for this feature. Fortunately it CAN be disabled easily. open the page you would use to change your screensaver. At the bottom of it is a smaller page with an "Energy star" logo in it.
This is your power settings control panel. From here you can adjust the settings so the "Sleep state" takes longer to kick in or disable it altogether.
You should also be able to find power settings in the control panel (But the path is different depending on which version of Windows you have" but it is always at the bottom of the screensaver panel.
