  • Click "Change plan settings," click "Change advanced settings" and then expand the "Sleep" section by clicking on the plus symbol.

  • Click "Sleep After" and then set both options to "Never."

  • Click "Allow hybrid sleep" and then set both options to "Never."

  • Click "OK" to apply the settings. Sleep mode is now disabled.
