Computer went to sleep when I left it downloading

Hi Folks

Well the title tells the story. I had a large MS Update to install, so I started the process; it was appx. 900mb so I left it alone to complete while I went away. When i returned tonight it had only 15 of 47 updates installed. I think it did this before also. What is the correct setting, or where do I change it, to ensure it continues to update while Im away?

thanks

It will depend on your OS. In Windows 7 its

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings

Choose the setting you want from the drop down box.

Can't remember XP, never used Vista long enough to find out and I imagine Windows 8 will be the same as 7.
