    PC Sleeps For No Apparant Reason


    My desktop PC sleeps, sometimes, even though I believe I have set everything in Power Settings to prevent this.
    I happens only 1 or twice a week and after about 15 minutes of no activity.
    Most of the time I could leave my PC on for several hours with no activity and it won't sleep.
    Not sure what sleeps. I could be my monitor.

    Any Ideas??

    You have system specs consisting of "Windows 7 64 bit" so I'm a bit confused.

    Try posting a Speccy published url for your system. The guessing game is a time waster. This shows how.
