    Hi guys. New to Windows 7 and have a question. It seems my test machines keep going into some kind of sleep/hibernate state that prevents me from VNC'ing to them. All I want is for the monitors to go to sleep after 15 minutes, but the machines to stay on. We do a lot of work during off hours, but the few test machines all seem to go night-night on me when I try to access them during those times.

    Does anyone know which group policy settings I should use in order to help with my late night VNC'ing?

    If I understand your problem fully you just need to adjust power settings:

    Control panel, power options, change plan settings, set sleep to "never".
