Disabling sleep mode on your computer and laptop
To configure the sleep mode in Windows, go to the “Power” item in the control panel (switch the view from “Categories” to “Icons” beforehand). On a laptop computer, it’s even faster to start the power settings: right-click on the battery icon in the system tray and select the corresponding item.
Well, one more way to get into the right settings item that works in any modern version of Windows:
Quick Start Windows Power Settings
Notice the “Set up sleep mode” item on the left. Click on it. In the dialog box that appears change the settings of the power supply circuit, you can just configure the basic settings for hibernation and turning off the computer display: automatic switching to sleep mode after a certain time when the network and battery power (if you have a laptop) or select the “Never switch to hibernate mode.
These are just basic settings. if you need to completely disable hibernation, including when the laptop is closed, separately configure settings for different power schemes, configure hard drive shutdown and other settings, click the “Change advanced power settings” link.
I recommend that you carefully examine all the items in the open settings window, as the sleep mode is set not only in the Sleep item, but also in a number of others, some of which depend on your computer hardware. For example, the hibernation mode on the laptop can be turned on when the battery is low, which is configured in the item “Battery” or when closing the lid (item “Power and lid buttons”).
How to Enable or Disable Hibernate in Windows 10
Once all the necessary settings have been made, save the changes, the sleep mode should not bother you again.
Note: Many laptops come pre-installed with proprietary power management utilities designed to extend battery life. In theory, they can put the computer in hibernation mode regardless of the settings Windows (although I’ve never seen that before). So if the settings made according to the instructions did not help, pay attention to this.
How to disable hibernation and turn off the display in Windows 7?
Hi! It’s been two days since I wrote anything useful on the blog, I was busy with one very important thing, which I will say at the end of the article :). Right now I will tell you how to disable hibernation and disabling the display in Windows 7. You probably know that if you leave your computer alone, do not press keys and do not touch the mouse, after a certain time, the screen will turn off and it goes to sleep, all this is done to save energy.
It’s all well and good, you need to save energy, global warming and other cataclysms, but the automatic switching to sleep mode very often brings a lot of trouble, as well as the automatic shutdown of the screen.
You may have had cases where you are watching a movie most often online, and after every, about 10 minutes the screen shuts down, you have to press keys, or move your mouse. Or left something to download from the Internet, and the computer went to sleep mode and everything stopped, that’s the problem. And in order to solve them, you just need to disable the automatic shutdown screen and go to sleep mode. Which we’re going to do now.
Click Start and go to Control Panel.
In the control panel, look for Power and select it.
Automatic screen turning off and going to sleep can be configured differently for the two plans: Balanced this plan is most often activated on desktop computers and laptops connected to the mains. And Power Savings. This one automatically turns on when the laptop is unplugged. Let’s configure for Balanced mode, click on Power Plan Settings next to it.
As you can see, I have it set to turn off the screen after 10 minutes, and automatically go to sleep after 30 minutes. All you have to do is just change the time, or disable it altogether by selecting Never. After making changes, do not forget to click save changes.
That’s all friends, now you can safely watch movies and leave the download for a long time. The computer will not turn off the monitor automatically and go to sleep.
And a few more words about what I was doing these past two days. I am making a new design for the blog, which if all goes well in a few days can be seen on this blog, so come in will wait :), all else I will not say anything. Good luck friends!
How to Turn Off Sleep Mode on a Windows Computer?
There are many variations of using the computer. According to one of them, it may be needed at any time, for example on a remote connection, but it will be unavailable because the PC is in hibernation mode, and the network does not support the “magic package” to wake up the device. For this and many other reasons, users want to disable sleep mode on their computer. “In this article, we will look at the possible options, where and how to disable sleep mode in Windows 10, 7, 8, XP How to disable the transition of your computer to sleep (sleep) To begin with, we will consider the easiest way to disable, namely how to remove the sleep mode on Windows 10 (Windows 10). Disable via Windows 10 Settings In Windows 10, Microsoft is starting to gradually make the transition from the Control Panel to Windows Settings, because it’s much more convenient and practical to have all the settings in one place. Since there is no Preferences window in Windows 8 and later, this method is only for Windows 10. To find the “Settings” window, click on Start and select the gear icon (or you can press Wini). Go into the “System” settings, then open “Power and Sleep”. In the item called Sleep, set it to “Never.”. But since Microsoft duplicates settings from the Control Panel, we will show the actual way for Windows 8/7/XP systems, also relevant for version 10. Disable under “Windows Control Panel” The Control Panel has always been the main place of customization and system configuration, until the arrival of version 10 of the system. Let’s show where and how to disable screen sleep mode on PC and notebook, for Windows 8/7 and XP, using the control panel as an example. To open it the same way on all systems, press WinR and in the “Run” window type the command control, then click OK. Then, locate and go to the “Power” settings. Remember to change the display to Small or Large icons. Or more simply, in the “Run” window, type the command powercfg.cpl and click on OK. In the left sidebar, click on “Hibernate Settings” or on the selected “Power Scheme Settings. After that you will be directed to the settings you need, where you should choose Never from the dropdown menu next to the “Transferring PC” parameter. Also, if your monitor goes to sleep mode and you don’t know how to disable it on Windows 7, 10, the “Disable display” setting will help you. This option is designed to save power when the device is not in use but the PC itself is active. The value Never will disable the ability to switch the monitor to standby mode. So the computer will no longer go to sleep unless it is set to an alternative value, which we will discuss next. Disable via power circuit Sometimes there can be conflicts between the sleep and power circuit settings due to different values. For example, if the diagram shows a value higher than Never, and the sleep mode is turned off in the settings, then both of them can be considered as a priority value. Everything largely depends on the chipset driver, which is what coordinates the power circuits. There were cases when both parameters were set to “Never” but the PC kept going to sleep, the reason was incorrect powercfg settings, but more about that later. Let’s get back to the power supply circuit. Go to “Power” and then to the active circuit settings. Select “Change advanced power settings”. The “Sleep” value we need contains several settings. For example. “Sleep after” and “Hibernate after” puts your device in hibernation or sleep mode after a certain period of inactivity. And the item “Allow wake-up timers.”. allows you to wake up the device according to some triggers, about which a little bit later. For Windows settings “Sleep after” as well as “Hibernate after”, select the value. Never to turn off the sleep mode on Windows 10/8/7. Additionally The command powercfg can be used to configure the power supply circuit in more detail. Using this command you can perform a full diagnostic of the power system and identify the most power-consuming applications, determine the source of device wake-up, and much more. You have to enter the commands in the “Command prompt” window as the Administrator. The command powercfg /? will bring up help for this setting. Let’s review the main commands: Powercfg /energy. analyzing the power-saving system for errors and warnings. At the end of the analysis a report is generated in the System32 folder.Powercfg /waketimers. listing the wake-up timers, which we spoke about earlier.You can also set the time to put the device to sleep: powercfg.x.standby-timeout-ac 0 where 0 is never and 15 will be 15 minutes (ac. for mains power, dc. for battery power) standby. sleep mode when the computer is “idle” monitor. disable monitor hibernate. go into hibernation mode. Also, you should pay attention to chipset drivers, such as Intel Management Engine and others, which, when installed, solve problems with going to sleep and any power problems. Don’t forget about using the manufacturer’s recommended power schemes. As practice has shown, these schemes really solve many problems related to sleep and consumption. In this article, we looked at the main ways when a computer goes to sleep, as well as how to disable going to sleep on Windows 7/8/10.

So if you did everything as mentioned above, but your laptop still goes to sleep, find such a utility and dig into its settings.
Disabling Sleep Mode in Windows 7. Deleting the hiberfil file.sys
Sleep mode. is a reduced power consumption mode that allows you to quickly resume normal power consumption (usually within a few seconds) at the request of the user. Hibernating a computer is like pressing the Pause button on a DVD player: the computer immediately stops all operations and is ready to resume its work at any moment.
Hibernation mode. is a low-power mode designed primarily for notebook computers. Hibernate saves all opened documents and settings into memory and lowers power consumption; Hibernate saves all opened documents and programs into hard drive and then shuts down the computer. Of all the power-saving modes that Windows uses, hibernation mode requires the least amount of power. If you don’t plan to use the notebook for a long period of time and don’t have an opportunity to charge the battery, it is recommended to put the notebook into hibernation mode.
Hybrid hibernation. is a mode that is designed primarily for desktop computers. Hybrid hibernation combines both hibernation and sleep mode since all open documents and programs are kept in memory and on the hard drive, and the computer is put into a low-power state. In the event of an unexpected power failure, Windows can easily recover data from the drive. If hybrid hibernation is enabled, switching to hibernation mode automatically puts your computer in hybrid hibernation mode. Hybrid hibernation is usually enabled by default on desktops
The choice of mode is up to the user. This article will offer an option to disable Sleep Mode, and remove the hiberfil file.sys
Disabling sleep mode in Windows 10 settings
The first way, which is also the easiest, is to use the new Windows 10 Settings interface, which can be accessed through Start. Settings or by pressing WinI on the keyboard.
In Settings, select “System” and then “Power and Sleep”. Just here, in the section “Sleep” you can configure the operation of sleep mode or disable it separately when powered from the mains or battery.
Here you can also configure the settings for turning off the screen if you want to. At the bottom of the power and sleep settings page, there’s an additional power settings item where you can also disable hibernation and at the same time change how the computer or notebook behaves when you press the shutdown button or close the lid (i.e.е. you can disable sleep for these actions as well). About this. next section.
