    Hi, anyone have any idea why this would happen and or how to stop it from happening, the compuetr is switching to standby and i have unselected all options that would promt it to do so, i did a registry clean before it started to happen but i cannot revert because i did not back up the registry properly.. any help would be appreciated ;0)

    When does it do this? Have you selected "Always on" in the Power Options in Control Panel?
