Hi, robhughes01010. Welcome to Seven Forums!

In addition to the wide range of tutorials here at Seven Forums, being new to Windows 7, you will find a lot of helpful tips in Windows 7 Help & How-to.

The topic at Sleep and hibernation: frequently asked questions includes instructions on preventing your computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating. Expand the section, "How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating?".

And I would get rid of the password (I have never used one for the OS). I think it is pretty useless - unless Corrine says otherwise,
