1) Disable all the POWER MANAGEMENT in BIOS so that PC will not shut down from inactivity or from closing the lid.
2) Set Control Panel, Power Management, Power Schemes Tab, to NEVER shut off Screen or HD in Plugged-In/AC Power mode.
3) Set Control Panel, Power Management, Advanced Tab, Power Buttons, "When I close the lid of my portable computer" to NONE.
Now, when you are inactive or close the lid, the computer will not try to shutdown, suspend, or hibernate. (You should remember that if you are accustomed to just shutting the lid).
We do NOT recommend shutting the lid of a laptop and letting it run. They can get very hot with the lid shut.
There is a small prong above the keyboard that turns off the screen when you shut the lid. Instead of shutting the lid, insert a plastic card, such as a credit card, in the groove below the hinge to depress that prong and shut off the screen, leaving the lid up to keep the machine running cool.
Follow these steps and you should have no problem running SETI Spy and SETI Driver with the CLI 24/7 on your Dell laptop.
