Windows 7 Sleep/Hibernate Mode?
 
On Windows XP and Windows 2000 systems I can leave a ECM task running and the system does not go into sleep/hibernate mode until after the task has finished. I've got a new system with Windows 7 installed, and left it running ECM tasks last night, but today discovered they system had gone into the sleep/hibernate mode after the scheduled time (default 2 hours) of no keyboard/mouse activity. Is this a setting I haven't found yet in the menus, or do I need to turn off the sleep mode in order to get overnight work?

I don't know of any other settings but have an idea that might work. Some, maybe all, versions of Windows will not sleep if you leave open the menu that pops up when you click the start button on the taskbar. Maybe that will work for you.

Control Panel
Power Options
Change plan settings(for the appropriate plan)
Change advanced power settings
Then finally Change settings that are currently unavailable

The settings you want to change are under sleep.
