I use Windows XP Prof and sometimes I run programs like a full scan of McAfee or disk defrag and of course I do NOT want the pc to go into power safe and thus freeze whatever my pc is running.  
Can someone please let me know all the places where I have configure this as I think I am missing some spots.  Even my monitor has a power safe.  Please let me know where and how to disable them. Thanks.
