Sleep mode disable?

Is there a way to disable sleep mode if the CR-48 is plugged in and charging? My friend says his always goes to sleep and I said I would ask if there is a way to disable that.

Send a message via MSN to modder
To my knowledge it can only be done via command line, and only for the current session (ie. when you reboot you would have to kill the feature again).

There is an extension called Keep Awake in the Chrome Web Store. I was reading an article in the Chomium forum about it. It allows you to toggle the power setting on/off. The other way is good until reboot. Here are the steps I found.

Login with the admin user.
Open a terminal by hiting CTRL+ALT+T
Type the following
shell (to drop into a standard bash shell)
sudo stop powerm - to disable sleep when lid is closed. You could go with the longer version of: sudo initctl stop powerm but there is no reason to type more…
sudo stop powerd - to disable all other power management features.
Now logout from the menu – But do not restart!
