    Question Sleep Mode

    I just purchased my Surface. I love everything about it except the sleep mode. Anyone know how to turn off the sleep/standby mode?

    Alt: Go to the desktop>battery icon (lower right)>more power options>change when computer sleeps> set all options to never (or time of your choice).
