Question Disable Hibernate


I am at a loss here. I have a linux box set up in the lobby where I work to display info all day long. I have turned the screen saver off and I thought I disabled the hibernate settings. Last week on Friday after sending out some updates remotely I had to re install the whole thing, due to it no longer finding the hard drive and I was unsuccessful at using the recovery feature. Anyway I set the machine back up like I had previous, all the same settings and what have you and now it goes to sleep pretty much within an hour and I have to run out to the lobby and shake the mouse. What am I missing? I am running opensuse 12.1 with the KDE environment 4.7.2

I think I found what I was looking for, to solve the issue I stopped the Power Management service.

Stopping the power management service did not stop my machine from going to a blank screen like I hopped it would. What I went ahead and did is restarted the service, then under the power profile I unchecked the screen power save option then set the screen saver to come on automatically after 1440 mins (24hrs). After sending out a mess load of updates (1.36GB worth) and a reboot the screen has stayed on with no issue for the last 5hrs. I have the machine set to restart at midnight everyday so I am hoping this will be a good work around.
