Windows 7: Computer randomly decides when it wants to sleep or not

Computer randomly decides when it wants to sleep or not

Hell, 7forums.

This issue has been plaguing me for months, I've tried several solutions across various forums and google results and nothing has helped, it even caused me to re-install windows, guess what? It didn't help.

What will happen is that:
About 50% of the time I send my computer to sleep the monitors will turn off, but everything in the case will stay powered on, and the lights on my keyboard will stay lit up too. Nothing in particular caused the issue that I can recall, I didn't change any hardware or install anything new on the day the issue begun about 30 minutes after the computer stays on it will then completely power off, and on reboot there is a message titled "windows has recovered from an unexpected shut-down"

When the computer actually decides to sleep, the monitors will turn off, there will be a kind of click noise from the case, and they keyboards lights turn off.

Would really appreciate any help, thank you.

Hi, firstly thanks for your reply, I appreciate it.

Secondly, will taking these steps really help? I read the post but apart from scanning the computer with malwarebytes and running sfc /scannow nothing else really seems to be related to my issue here.

Finally finished, malwarebytes found no threats, sfc /scannow found corrupt files but was unable to fix them, however I doubt they are related to the issue, as I did sfc/ scannow in safe mode when i first encountered this problem and it found no corrupt files.
