Default Re: HELP emachines ?

Try reviewing the manual for the system as far as settings in the bios for power to make sure that is set for user defined there. Most likely you have to go into the power options and set everything to never like display, hard drives by default are set to 20min. and hibernation is eveidently enabled. The two ways to get at those settings are through the control panel or right clicking on the desktop.

For the fast and easy simply right click on the desktop and click on properties to bring up a new screen there. Select the screen saver tab and then to the bottom half of that screen for the power options button. The next screen will bring up the power settings. Set these all to never there and that should prevent this.
