Windows 7 is configured to save power by switching off, going into standby or hibernation after a set idle time. In a Workstation Server environment this would cause problems for remote workstations accessing SIMS.
Set the Windows 7 Power Plan to maximum
- Click Start
- Type Power Options, then press Enter
- Click “Show additional Plans”
