Default my laptop goes into sleep-mode everytime i close it

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 Laptop, and everytime I close it it goes into "hibernate" sleep mode. how can i change this so it just stays on my desktop even when I put the screen down (to carry it somewhere)

What OS are you using?

If you right-click, go into Properties, then Screen Saver, then "Power Saving", there should be an area that allows you to choose what the laptop does when the screen is closed.
