  1. Sleep settings


    When I set my laptop on 'never' for going to sleep and turning off for both plugged in and on battery power, it still does occasionally. Can be very annoying, as when I have multiple desktops and turn my laptop on, it can switch to the other desktops, rather than the one I was originally on. Is there a way to permanently set it to never sleep or turn off for battery power and plugged in?


    Thanks in advance.

    :)
