Windows 7: Power options

18 Dec 2012   #1

windows 7 64 bit professional
Power options

Monitor screen goes blank without warning even though I am actively using the computer. Computer seems to think I'm not being active enough.
How do I stop this from happening? I've visited the following location in the computer:
Control panel/Power options/Edit plan settings/Turn off the display/[Options: 1 minute to 5 hours or "Never"]
What do these time intervals mean? "1 minute to 5 hours" from when? Perhaps this is not the place where this problem can be fixed.

No activity for the stated time will turn off your monitor. Set it as you like.
