whenever i leave my computer dut i'm not using it it goes to sleep after about 30-45 mins

i need it to stay on as i'm downloading windows 7 again as its always going corrupt so have been told to download through torrents but it keeps falling a sleep and i don't want to sit here and wait for it to finish as i want to watch the arsenal vs spurs match

mine is doing that too just haven't bothered to fiddle with the options, i'm sure there's an option under power modes. When i get to my computer i'll have a look for you
