Default How do I turn off stand-by?

Every time I leave my desk for about 30 minutes the computer my computer goes into stand-by mode and when I move the mouse to get out of it I'm back at my computer screen name log-in screen, how do I make it so that the computer doesn't do this? Normally I wouldn't find this a problem but every time it does this the internet goes out.

Also, it's not a screen saver, since I turned those off.

Start > Control Panel (Go to Classic View if not already in it) > Power Options.

It will be under system standby; just change that drop down box.
