If it's a desktop machine, you shouldn't be using Standby or Hibernate. Those features were designed for laptops (& other mobile devices) & can cause problems when used on desktop systems.

If you insist on using it, right click on the desktop screen, click Properties, then the Screen Saver tab. Click the Power button, then adjust the Power Scheme settings.
