Standby Issues

Hi All,

I am currently streaming video from a Dell Dimension 4700 Rev A05 to Dreambox DM500s using vlc. I want the PC to go into standby after 10mins of no use but my problem is that the pc goes into standby even when it is streaming, is there a way of changing the setting to not go into standby if there is traffic over the network???

I'm new to this setup and still learning any help woll be greatly appreciated???

Usually just going into the power options, network adaptor settings, then setting the network to maximum performance will keep that from happening.
Control panel>large icons>power options.
