desktop keeps going into sleep mode.

So I have had my rig up and running for about 5 months and it is running like a dream,the one thing that is annoying is that after about 5 mins,it keeps going into a kind of sleep mode?When you move the mouse it wakes back up.Is there any way of turning this function off if so how?I'm using an Asus p8z77-lx an I5 3570k and *g ram.
