Windows 7: Computer goes to sleep when music is playing in itunes

Computer goes to sleep when music is playing in itunes

Hi,

When i'm listening to music in itunes my computer will turn off the display if i just leave songs playing. My speakers are connected to my display so this is an issue.

In the power settings window I can see a setting for what to do when video is playing but not music.

When video is playing my display stays on although i don't view video in itunes.

I don't want to just turn power saving off.

Any ideas?

Increase the time for the computer to turn off its display/go to sleep in Power Options...

You can change it back later OR make a custom power plan...call it Music...set a longer display/sleep cutoff...and switch profiles when necessary
