keeping computer "unlocked" when idle for a period of time

Hello! I am trying to find a way to prevent my computer from going into
"locked" mode when it is idle for awhile. I listen to internet radio and
after about 20min or so of being idle, my computer locks my account as if I
put it into "sleep" mode. Therefore, cutting off my radio connection. Is
there any way I can change the settings so that I can listen longer than
20min? I already changed the amount of time before putting computer to
"sleep" while plugged in to "never" but this did not help at all. Thanks!

Hello.

We have an excellent tutorial section. One addresses sleep and power issues and should be helpful to you. You can find it here: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html

I hope this helps.
