Hope someone out there has advice to help with this irritating problem…
I am using a Toshiba Satellite laptop (circa 2003) to run my digital audio workstation. Im recording music to a hard drive using a firewire audio interface. My problem is that I cant seem to stop the thing from turning the monitor off and powering down to sleep mode (I think thats what it is doing)
in the control panels there is the Windows Power Management Options, as well as a seperate Toshiba Power Mgmt control panel. The Toshiba control panel completely overrides the Windows one, and is there (I heard) because the laptop’s flat screen monitor sucks power.
Problem is that when Im trying to record a song, I am not always moving the mouse, or on the keyboard, after a few minutes, the computer senses this and powers down. This creates a permanent glitch noise in my recording.
Ive tried to fiddle with the power management control panels to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?
