Windows 7: Away mode system

Away mode system

Address a problem with Away Mode System

This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between your computer's Away Mode System and your 64-bit version of Windows. The Away Mode System is only compatible with 32-bit versions of Windows.
This problem is not critical, but you can prevent it from occurring again by disabling the Away Mode System in your computer's BIOS. Refer to the instructions that came with your computer that explain how to access the BIOS and turn off Away Mode System support.


Could anyone tell me how to turn this off or give me the link to another thread with instructions. Also, do i need to turn it off or is it ok as it is?
thanks in advance.

Go to Control Panel > Power Options > Click on the "Change Plan Settings" beside the one you are currently using

Now click on "Change Advanced Power Settings" > Click on the + sign beside "Multimedia Settings" > Click the + sign beside "When Sharing Media " > Change the setting to "Allow Computer to Sleep".
