How do I prevent Windows7 from going stand-by?

If it is stand-by, I need to push the button and the screen appears. The problem then is that internetconnection has been broken, I need to restart the computer to be able to internet again.

Hi absurd, this topic was marked as solved (by you?), but I don´t think your question was answered, so here goes. Go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound ->Power Options -> Change plan settings, from there you can change "Put the computer to sleep:" to never. Matt
