You can change the power configuration by \client\cmd and locating DoUpdate.cmd open with notepad++ and locate line 314 change the 1 at the end of the line to 0 and the screen will never go black. Or you can change it to any other number you would prefer.

Code: Select all
for %%i in (monitor) do (
  for %%j in (ac dc) do %SystemRoot%\System32\powercfg.exe -X -%%i-timeout-%%j 0

Thank you :) That's much easier than download (and compile) from the trunk.

Power scheme works perfectly on windows 7 but on Windows 8.1 x64 it does not alter the option "put computer to sleep" to never.
its very rare that i have had to deal with 8/8.1 so i only found this out recently

any advice?

Any power management software running that changes/switches the power profile in the background? Is it a laptop or a desktop computer?

its a laptop. quite possible that it had power management software installed. This was not a fresh install but i run the updates anyway.

client was complaining of it being slow to load. cause was 3 AVs. i thought that offline updating would make it seem quicker since it would have to download them later.

3 AVs is absolutely crazy-go-nuts!

Prime suspects are power tools installed or pre-installed by the laptop OEM. I actually use a tool that can also alter power schemes: Process Lasso from Bitsum LLC. But there may be more. Check if the power schemes have names that differ from the standard ones - a good sign of them having been altered.
