sleep in win 7


Monte Single
 

Yes, I can go to sleep manually from the desktop in win 7, using nvda of course.

I think there may be something in the control panel where I can set sleep to happen after a period of inactivity.

Where or what is this?

Thanks,

Monte

I believe you're looking for control panel>power options>change when the computer sleeps. Another way to get to this is by going in to the run dialog and typing "powercfg.cpl", without quotes.

Control Panel, Power Options, then Change Plan Settings link for whichever plan you happen to have active at the moment.  This will bring up the options for turning off the display and sleep.   You also have the option, once you're in Control Panel, Power Options, to do as Mohamed has mentioned and activate the Change when the computer sleeps link if the only thing you wish to tweak is the sleep settings - which will default to those being used by the currently active power plan.

Hi

It’s in the Power management settings.  You can set times after which various power saving events will happen for both mains and battery operation (if applicable).

 

Cheers

Chris

Not just similar, but the same.  Even if you use Settings as your entry point and drill down, at this juncture you're eventually thrown into the Control Panel Power Options dialog.  It's just faster to go there directly.

It may eventually disappear, but I think that will be a long time coming.

Yes. Configuring this is also accessible from the new Settings app, but you can still change the setting through the classic control panel as well.
