 How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating during a map or software update?
Article You can adjust how long your computer waits before sleeping or hibernating—or prevent it from turning itself off altogether. But be careful. On a battery powered laptop, inhibiting sleep or hibernation can result in data loss if the battery dies. Here's how to prevent your computer from entering a power-saving state:

- Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.

- On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings next to the selected plan.

- On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.

- On the Advanced settings tab, double-click Sleep, double-click Sleep after, and then do one of the following:

- If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.

- If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.

- Double-click Hibernate after, and then do one of the following:

- If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.

- If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.

- If you also want the display to stay turned on, double-click Display, double-click Turn off display after, and then do one of the following:

- If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.

- If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.

- Click OK, and then click Save changes.
