I have a Compaq Presario V6000. When the computer is not plugged in the screen will go black after a while and I have to close the lid to hibernate then start it again. All drivers seem to be functional and updated. Any help?

Thanks.

Try Control Panel> Power options> Power Schemes Tab.
In the column under "Running on batteries" in the "system standby" box set to "never"

Thanks for the response, but the computer is not standing by. For example, if there is music playing, it continues to play. It's an issue of the screen going black, not the computer hibernating or standing by.

Try same steps but set "turn monitor off" to never.

How old is your battery?

The battery is brand new. There were previous battery issues, though.
