Eraser 5.7 and system standby?


New Member
My question is when running a free space wipe in Windows XP my computer goes into standby after 20 minutes
which it is set to anyway, which disrupts Eraser finishing the task, how do I remedy this or do I have change the power options for system standby in XP?
you need to change the power options. It's like running any other program where the computer goes into standby, it will just terminate the running of the program as far as I can see.

Presumably, it needs the mouse or something to be moved once in a while to stop it powering off... if so, you definately need to change the power option.
