Disable sleep?

bjanssen, these replies are misleading. It is possible to turn off the feature to automatically sleep but the screen will stay on as well. This is much less than ideal if you want your computer on and torrenting things.


The solutions offered by going through the link above don't work for the surface pro 3 (Monoff or Sleeper). I'm still looking for a solution myself. I'd like a feature similar to that in Windows 7 where after a period of time, the computer locks itself and turns off the monitors. I'd like to be able to walk away from my desk while I wait for some code to run and not worry about locking the computer and the monitor staying on. If you or anyone has a solution, I'd love to hear it.

It's the most annoying thing about the SP3, keeping the screen on the entire time to download large file is ridiculous.
