PC goint to sleep

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and sometimes I want to run a virus scan and do not want the monitors to go to sleep or the pc going to hibernate mode, etc.  I have he following syntax which I run, but it still does not work:
:\Windows\System32\powercfg.exe -setactive dd36f31e-745c-416d-9958-26cfc61529bf
Hope the experts can please examine the syntax to see if there is anything wrong and how to fix it.  Thank u.
