    I have a Lenovo R61 laptop. It annoys me when the computer shuts down every 15 minutes or so if I don't touch the keyboard.

    I was trying to watch a movie last night and kept jumping up to touch the keyboard to keep the show running. Argh..

    Suggestions?

    If you're running Window Vista or Windows 7, hit the Start button. In the search box, type: power . You should see an item called "Power Options". Click on it. On the next window, click "Change Plan Settings". This is where you can specify when your display dims or turns off. Or when your computer shuts down. Here's a video in case you need some extra help finding the options.

    If you're using Windows XP, just go to Start, Control Panel, and then Power Options.
