Need to run a diagnostic program for my windmill and so it is important that the computer does not shut down automatically. How can I set it to NOT shut down when it is not in use?

No, my computer shuts down just fine. What I need is to run a diagnostic program that checks and loads data minute by minute on my windmill. Having problems with the windmill and the technician needs to see what it is doing. They want me to run the program all day tomorrow, but if the computer is not active, the screen saver pops up and the program will not run. I have gone in to the Display page and said to only turn on the screen saver after 6,000 plus minutes. It still comes on. Help?

Usually in power management settings is the way to set power.

Screen save just don't use it. Set it to empty on nothing, Don't set any.

In power options, don't overlook Hibernate.

If your computer is NOT a laptop/notebook then you can stop Hibernate.
Hibernation, reserves disk space equal to your RAM.
