    And your OS is?

    You can kill the sleep/standby/hybernation in Control Panel . Power Options.

    Xp and Vista are a lot different in there.

    Right-click any blank space on your Desktop and select "Properties". Click the "Screen Saver" tab, then the "Power" button. I don't have my laptop on right now but, look under the "Advanced" tab for something to the effect of "When I close the lid on my Laptop", then select the "Do Nothing" option for that setting.

    My Toshiba shows a link to Change power settings there.
