in VBA by Beginner (4 points)
I have a VBA macro that downloads data from yahoo finance.com every minute during market hours.

My problem is that when I leave my computer and it goes into sleep mode, the macro stops running.

Is there any way to prevent the computer from going into sleep mode, or a way for the macro to keep running in sleep mode?
