Well, that would certainly remove both issues.

Find the "Command Prompt" icon, right-click on it, and select "Run as Administrator". From the Command Prompt, run this command and see if any program is listed:

powercfg /requestsOverride

If not, either disable your screen saver and disable turning off the display, or get a better video player.

✔ Best Answer
Most programs will tell the computer not to turn off the display, but whichever one you are using is obviously not doing this. You should be able to adjust this by going to
Control Panel > System > Power Options

Make sure all of your video drivers are up-to-date, as this could be the problem.

What browser are you trying to make google your homepage? When you say "Accepted google to be default" do you mean Google Chrome is your default browser, or it is your default search engine?

How to change your homepage:

Chrome

Internet Explorer

Firefox

Hope this helps!
