How to Prevent Your Computer from Sleeping and Hibernating in Windows 7

I just bought a new PC laptop and am busy adding new software, setting up Outlook, loading my favorites, etc. My biggest hurdle was getting all of my files downloaded from MozyPro, my online vault that automatically backs up my laptop every time some changes.
