    Try this: Right click on the window's icon in the bottom left, a menu should open up, click power options and try setting those to never. Might also be in your screen saver settings, which you can access in the same menu from above.

    You beat me to it. Another way:

    Press the Windows Key + S, type in, and click on Power & sleep. Under Sleep, you should see When plugged in, PC goes to sleep after.

    Click the drop-down box and select Never.

    oddly enough, I used my laptop for a few minutes last night to look up if red rocks had tickets still next to some tickets I bought and my computer kept turning off every few minutes. It was right before bed and the mission was accomplished so I did not look into it to see if it was a similar issue.

    Guys, I tried pretty much everything you told me. I got rid of the sign-in at startup and I changed my password to blank but it still times out... there's just no password required but I have to click sign in... better than nothing.

    Thanks for your help

    My best stab is people make software that can buy tickets for their scalping business so that they can't only buy with a singular account at a time.

    Similarly, a person, group or country could develop software that managed thousands of social media accounts and as you tell it to post something, it can post it to all of those accounts.

    Spiders are 8 legged arachnids that spin webs to catch other insects and eat them.

    Crawler is a slang word for when mryeahbut gets in trouble with his wife and tries to make it up to her

    Even though I can barely get though Stubhub without screwing up, seems like writing software for it wouldn't be all that tough.

    As far as spiders go, I hunt black widows for sport in the summer. I have no permit and I mostly hunt them at night with a flashlight which likely is illegal.

    I have been known to crawl in front of women.

    Get rid of the stupid Tapatalk thing!

    btw, I hate you.

    Neat idea.

    At under three bills, I would find somewhere with a good return policy and test it out. Go through the whole presentation and if it passes the muster, you're in business.

    Can't seem to find it anywhere other than their website. Don't know why, but the touch-screen model is less expensive but it's not even shipping until July. Specs say it's compatible with Galaxy S9 which is what she has.
