Windows 7: Prevent Windows from entering standby mode in MC?

Prevent Windows from entering standby mode in MC?

Is there a way to prevent my computer from going into standby mode while Windows Media Center is open?

I think I broke my last monitor because instead of figuring out this problem, I just set my monitor to stay on all the time. It is rather annoying to keep touching the mouse to prevent the monitor from going black.

Thank you

You can either change the power settings to keep your computer from going to sleep, or you can install a tool called MST. MST keeps your MCE alive, among other things.
