It sounds like you just need to adjust your Power Profile to do what you want.

Right-click Desktop > Personalize > Screen Saver > Change power settings.

That's really up to you, and what you prefer and how you use the system. I don't use sleep or hibernate, because I turn my computer off when I'm done with it at night. My tower uses the High Performance profile. I have no screensaver, but I shut the monitor off after 15 minutes. I have the hard drives set to never shut off, either.

Is it happening when it goes to sleep? Do you have SP1 and is your C: drive controller use a SCSI drive (like the Marvell or JMicron SATA controllers)? If so, then that is a bg in SP1 and there is a hot fix for it.
Let me know and I will point you to the hot fix.

Do you have a link or some info about this bug? I'd like to read some info on it, and see if I have any affected systems I need to be aware of.

Disable hibernation or hybrid sleep mode in your power management advanced options (for hybrid sleep -> Hybrid sleep mode -> disable) or use the hotfix below.

There is a bug in SP1 that if you boot with a drive with a SCSI miniport driver, hibernation (and hence hybrid sleep) do not work and neither does taking a crash dump on the resulting STOP, hence the shutdown.

There is a Microsoft hotfix. I have the link in the post below. I have used it and it fixed my system, but as always, make a restore point or backup first.

Why power fail EID 41 when sleeping after SP1
