Temporarily Prevent Your Computer From Going in to Sleep Mode Using Insomnia

by Jawwad in Software, Tips&Tricks, Windows | 0 comments


By default, in Windows if you don’t use the computer for a specific time it goes in to so called sleep/low power state. The time after which the system goes in to the sleep mode depends upon the power settings on that specific Windows system. In most of the cases it is fine because you actually want the system to go in to sleep mode if you are not using it because it is low power mode and it might be able to save some energy in this way. However, there might be some scenarios where you want to temporarily disable this behavior – say if you are listening to some music, watching a movie or burning a DVD you will not want the system to go to sleep mode.
