I recently installed a new Microsoft Media Center remote and Receiver. After doing this my PC now goes in to Hibernation or Sleep mode. Is there a way to stop this? I have all the standard Windows setting like Power set to always on, as well no screen saver.
Prior to the install it was Always On.

Thanks for any tips.

    Is this a single user pc, if not check other user power settings.

    What have you got Power scheduler set too (TVServer config\plugins), or if not using TV or using MP's own Powerscheduler it's settings.

    Which OS are you running, if Vista then you need to name process to keep powerscheduler from shutting down pc, ie firefox, iexplorer, as it does not recognises remote\keyboard input to keep system awake.
