Earlie,r my question about Microsoft Essentials was answered in a very satisfactory way. However, if I want to walk away from the computer and leave it doing a scan it goes into sleep mode. How do I change this please.
I am operating windows 7. Thank you, once again.

Look under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options click on the 'Change when the computer sleeps' section, on the dropdown menu select 'Never' then click 'Save changes' do your scan. Once the scans finished go back and edit your power options to re-set them back to what you want.

In addition to the above... unless you also change the "choose what closing the lid does" setting to do nothing then it will go to sleep if you shut the screen.
