My minecraft keeps timing out when my computer goes to sleep, and i am trying to afk mine overnight. I do not wish to set my windows settings to "do not go to sleep" and am hoping for a solution. Thanks!
So my game will time out no matter what I do if my computer sleeps?
Sleep mode is essentially a 'soft-off'; it is designed to save power (and prevent burn-in on monitors) by essentially shutting down the computer (but without losing unsaved changes to open documents).
In a different context, what you're asking for is a light that stays on after you turn it off.
Setting the computer to 'never sleep' should not be a problem if you use a screen saver (or turn off the monitor) and are not relying on battery power.
[I've had the box I'm on set to never sleep for some years (since I got it) without issue; I do, however, have the monitor set to turn off after being unattended for 15 minutes. (These settings are typically under "Power Options".)]
