Hey Maxie. I am home from work if you want to work on the sleep issue now. It didn't shut itself down while we were gone today, which is a good thing.

I turned off Homegroup, as I didn't want to use it. But, I did see other computers under the network and sharing center area.

Note: That may not be what its called.
