Windows 7 : [How to] Change sleep option

Changing settings for Sleep or Hibernate is not recommend in terms of power saving. However if you have got in a situation like me, it would be useful. Today I was downloading a movie (not to mention the name – clue is Socializing world story :P ) As I was downloading via Browser, it was large file and so I left the PC intact. Later when I switched back, I found myself kicking back. The windows 7 power saving option has put ON the sleep mode and the Internet connection was stopped temporarily. The files that were downloading failed to communicate with the server.  Here is a step how to change sleep option in Windows 7 PC.

  • Go to Control Panel
  • Click the Power options
  • Click the Change plan settings in the balanced section.

P.S:  watch movies in theatre for the real video and  sound effects, Legal way , …. Had to see because it is not yet released here(in Chennai, India) ~ almost a month gone after the movie has aired.
