In this tutorial I show how to turn OFF Sleep Mode in Windows 7 or Vista on your computer, so that you can render a video overnight without your computer going to Sleep.

I also show you how to make sure your CPU is running at FULL speed 100% for rendering. Quite often on many laptops, the CPU speed is throttled back to extend battery life. These settings can easily be changed in Control Panel - Power Options.
