    I am sitting here wanting to go to bed but I am waiting for 2650 photos (8G) to copy across from my dads camera to my pc.

    I don't want to wait up for it to finish. If i turn the monitor off how can I also somehow stop my PC going into to standby or hibinate mode (and therefore stop downloading the pics)?

    Will stopping the screen saver help?

    I am using xp

    Thanks

    You need to adjust your power plan setting to never hibernate.

    Ok well you can go to your power settings by either going to Start/control panel or right click on the power/battery icon in the tray at the bottom right hand cornder of your screen. I'm using Windows Vista so it may be a little different, but essentially the same.

    If you are in the power options screen, there should be a link/button for you to edit the plan/battery settings..

    Obviously you'll want to have the power plugged in. I'm pretty sure there will be a bit where it has adjustments for how long before the screen shuts off and how long before the computer goes into hibernation. All you have to do is change those settings so that they are set to 'never'.

    I hope this helps..

    Well see problem was the power cable had been dis connected so it only managed to copy another 100 or so.

    Wee bit silly - but oh well I don't think any harm was done.
