How can I stop my computer from going into standby/hibernation mode? A few weeks ago I went on a Vacation bringing my laptop which during the trip suffered a damaged hard drive. I got a new one from a guy at my work. The computer works fine except it puts itself in standby/hibernate mode (I'm not sure which one) It starts up extremely quickly but it interrupts a fairly large Download I am trying to do. Does anyone know how to stop this?
