System automatically enters sleep after waking from sleep

Windows Vista and later versions of Windows go back to sleep or hibernate automatically after a specified period of time if you do not touch the mouse or keyboard. The default time is set to 120 seconds.

To change that value, open the REGEDIT tool, then select the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0\DefaultPowerSchemeValues

System automatically enters sleep after waking from sleep

The DefaultPowerSchemeValues key contains three subkeys, which correspond to Balanced, High Performance, and Power Saver options. You need to change the ACSettingIndex and DCSettingIndex values in all three keys. You can either set a period longer than the maximum anticipated duration of the run of the scheduled task (in seconds) or set 0 to turn off this feature.

I am a CPA and have used Advanced Task Scheduler Professional to automate many tasks both as part of my firm, as well as client accounting processes. I am very impressed with the power and flexibility of the software. Also, I am very appreciative of the scripts that you have written for me to help me automatically log into websites and download information. I look forward to continuing to find more uses of this software. Thanks.
