Hp pavilion all in one AMD goes to sleep after 1 minute idle then asks for password to open up.. how to extend idle time to 2 hours


What you are experiencing isn't "sleep" mode, it is the screen saver. If you have WINXP, right click on a clear area of the desktop, and select "Properties". When the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window appears, select the "screen saver" tab. Change the "WAIT" time to the time you wish the scrren saver to delay. If you don't want to have to login after a screen time out, uncheck the "On resume, display Welcome Screen" box.

    If I leave my computer unattended for maybe 15 min. this monitor turns itself off. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks, brumeister



    Screen savers can help protect your monitor from wear by showing a constantly changing display when your computer is not being used. Screen savers can be simple, like the Blank screen saver that turns off your monitor to save energy. To change your screen saver 1. Right-click your desktop, and then click Properties.
    2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab.
    3. Click the Screen saver drop-down box, and then click a screen saver.
    4. Click the Preview button to see how the screen saver will appear on your monitor.
    5. Move your mouse or press a key to return to the Display Properties dialog box. To try a different screen saver, return to step 3. 6. Click the Settings button to change the standard behavior of the screen saver you selected. (Each screen saver has its own settings dialog box.) Then, click OK.
    7. In the Wait box, type the number of minutes the computer should wait to start the screen saver after you last touched the keyboard or mouse.
    8. If you are the only person who uses your computer and you are not concerned about security, clear the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. Note: If your computer is joined to an Active Directory, the Fast Users Switching feature will be disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business, and it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. However, disabling the Fast User Switching feature is not the default setting. Almost all computers in home environments will have Fast User Switching enabled. When Fast User Switching is enabled, you'll see the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. If you're part of a domain, you'll see the On resume, password protect check box.
    9. Click OK.

    Screen saver keeps poping up if i stop typing and i have 2 keep unlocking screen everytime i get back on computer and also slide show comes up when its sitting 4 awhile


    xp:
    1. right click on unused space on your desktop and click properties to bring the display properties, (you can also go into start>control panel and double click on display)
    2.then go to the screen saver tab and click on it
    3. modify the time for screen saver to come up and uncheck the box that says "on resume password protect" so you're not asked for a password everytime your screen saver is on and you're returning to work on your computer.

    vista:

    it's a bit different than xp but similiar in some sense..
    when you right click on the desktop go to "Personalize" to bring the display properties and then go to screen saver and modify the wait time and password protected settings.

    hope that helps!!
