Windows 7: Laptop keeps unexpectedly shutting down while in sleep.

Windows 7 HP 64 bit.
Laptop keeps unexpectedly shutting down while in sleep.

Hi Seveners,

I am new to the forums, so anything I do wrong here, please do correct me ;P.

The problem I am having is my laptop (all model details are on my profile, but I have no idea if they are added to this post or not) keeps unexpectedly shutting down during sleep mode. It goes a little like this:
1) Feeling tired so press start and presses sleep.
2) Computer goes into sleep mode
3) I go to bed
4) Wake up to find my laptop has rebooted, and is on my BIOS password screen.
5) Log in to find the "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error screen.
This has happened more than once, which is really annoying. I have tried updating all of my drivers, completing all windows updates, uninstalling recently installed programs, doing a virus check, etc. I am having no luck and I was wondering if you gurus of the internet could help me out with this.



PS. If you needed any more of my PC's information, I took the liberty of including the .txt from CPU-Z

Another option is Control Panel > Power Options > see pic for changes.
