Question about Computers & Internet
I JUST bought a Windows 7 Dell computer and DESPITE adjusting the suggested whatever to NEVER TO SLEEP, my monitor is CONSTANTLY going to sleep while I am playing a game on it; with my XP Pro Dell computer, this issue NEVER arose. How do I STOP my monitor from going to sleep?
Hmmm, sleep/suspend mode is only supposed to happen when it doesn't sense any movement from the mouse, it also shouldn't suspend if you are in full-screen either. So if you are playing a game that shouldn't happen at all... as a test you should put the "turn off the display" to "never" and see if it still happens.
I have this happen when watching Netflix, if I don't move the mouse my TV will go into suspend mode, even though I am in full screen... I think my issue however is related to the fact that I am using HDMI to connect to my TV from my computer... I have not solved this issue yet!

Start by checking ControlPanel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. Look for yellow marks that indicate devices not installed properly. This is usually a driver issue, and Dell should have given you a disk with the drivers you need.
Are you getting any error messages?
