Windows 7: Windows 7 suddenly and unexpectedly goes into sleep mode

Windows 7 suddenly and unexpectedly goes into sleep mode

I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad running Windows 7 Ultimate x32 to operate an astronomical observatory. This requires running a range of software simultaneously. On several occassions, my computer has gone into sleep mode and will not respond to waking requiring a hard shutdown and reboot. This introduces a host of registry errors and stops any astrophotography. I have looked into Event Viewer and all I get is the following entry:

The system is entering sleep.
Sleep Reason: Application API

Why is this happening? What can I do about it?

I can add that the cause appears to be "Event 42, Kernel-Power".
