My mac loves to sleep, but I don't want it to. My energy saving settings are like so: am I missing something???

I wake up, my alarm not having turned on because my laptop has slept (with the power cord in), or sometimes I get an error as if it tried to sleep but a programme prevented it from doing so:

I searched everywhere for a solution and thought when I found this link (http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57439267-263/managing-automatic-application-termination-in-lion/) I was sorted. It seems not.

All I want to do is leave my computer on, just with the display off so when I move my mouse it turns on the screen looking right at my desktop (or at least the password enter box for security).
