utorrent not preventing sleep mode


Recommended Posts

hi all

I got my new pc few days ago and installed Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP1

and i'm using uTorrent 1.8.1

now for some reason its going into sleep mode even when i'm downloading with uTorrent

the option "Prevent standby if there are active torrents" is ON

i looked at the internet and found a setting

gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Power Management > Sleep Settings > Turn on Application to Prevent Sleep Transitions (Plugged In) > [Enabled]

I made it enabled, restarted the computer and tried it out

(configured in power settings to turn off monitor, hard drive & sleep after 1 minute)

but it still didn't work. after 1 minute the computer went to sleep while there are active torrents

I couldn't find anything else on the internet about this issue

it seems to work for other people with vista

can anyone help me out with it?

thanks in advance
