    I have a little problem. Whenever I am not using my computer, it goes into stand-by mode. When in stand-by mode, my internet turns on to stand-by mode also, so when I am downloading things, I can't let my PC idle for a half hour.
    So anyways, I was wondering, is there any way to make my PC not go into stand-by mode?
    Thanks in advance :D

    Go to the Control Panel, and then to "power options"

    Make sure that all the options there say "never".
    That should do the trick :)

    WOW. I didnt know that, it is a western digital model IDE on an Intel 845GV mobo, spinning at 7200 rpm...ive seen faster. It could be my new sstuff like my 768 MB ram...

    Well, a 7200RPM drive should be fast, especially if it has a 8MB cache.
    Also, good RAM amount should help a lot :)
