When trying to down load something that is going to take a while I will start the download right befor I go to bed. When I come back to see if the download is done the screen has {Preparing To Standby} and my computer will not respond to any thing I do. I have to turn it off by the power button and then turn it back on. Is there any settings that can cause this. I had to reboot my computer about 3 weeks ago and I downloaded all the updates that microsoft hade at that time.

Turn off any Power saving options in the Power Options control panel. These options will turn off monitor, hard disk etc after a period of inactivity.

Before doing the answer 1 you'll need to went thru the BIOS settings and turn off ACPI control functions
