Why “sa” account is trying to obtain lock on user table?

I often have to run programs with long-running processes. When I want to check on the progress, the system is sleeping and I have to log in. How can my program keep the screen active?

Thanks,

Jon

If you can turn off sleep  mode, then do that outside of your program  (in control panel). If you cannot turn off sleep mode, it is probably because you don’t have admin priveledges, and the people that do set it for security reasons.  In that case, you should “live with it”.

I have admin rights, but I do not want to monkey with control panel manually every time I run  one of these lengthy data extractions. I do not want to permanently shut off sleep  mode. I just want certain programs  to signal the system  that it is active,
