Great, glad it worked.
The correct powercfg command btw is "powercfg (space) -h (space) off
" but it's up to you to use it or not.
As for the pagefile, rightclick My Computer
on your desktop or in your Start menu and select Properties
from the context menu. In the window that opens, click on Advanced System Settings
(on the left). Another window opens; click the first Settings
button near the top and then (yet another window) go to the Advanced
tab. Finally, click the Change
You guessed it: another window.
Now you can uncheck "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" (if checked) and set custom sizes for the pagefile per drive (just leave it on your C: drive). Since you have a lot of RAM, a 1GB pagefile should be sufficient, so click "Custom size", enter 1024 and 1024 and then click the "Set" button at the bottom. This will prompt you to restart, but you can do that whenever you're ready, it doesn't have to be right away.
Anyway, glad the system protection settings did it for you
