Windows Idle/Statndby and Applet call

I have an application which will plot chart(jfree chart) by fetching data from server.

Particularly in one Windows machine if I keep system idle for more than 20-60 min Applet will stop calling the server for data and stop plotting chart.

Can any one help me in figuring out the root cause of this issue?
I suspect it is some System settings which bring the JVM to idle, if so any one guide me to figure out that?

Thanks in advance,

Is the applet's "stop" method being called for some reason? Maybe the screen saver kicks in, and the browser decides the applet doesn't need to run any more.

But this is happening only one PC.
Yes there are some settings in that PC or browser which stops applet to process any more.

I will check whether a screen saver doing this.


I agree. Here's the link:
