Windows 7: Windows enters standby/hibernation even with power settings adjusted.

Windows enters standby/hibernation even with power settings adjusted.

Even with my power settings adjusted, my computer will still periodically go into sleep every half an hour to an hour or so without attendance. Its annoying mainly because I play xbox live, which is bridged through my pc, and I get disconnected because of this.

Any reasons why it could be doing this?
