Windows 7: Laptop goes to sleep by itself while in use

Laptop goes to sleep by itself while in use

This has happened several times during the last few days. My laptop goes to sleep by itself randomly while I am actively using it. The model is Dell XPS L502x.

Thanks in advance!

It seems that this happens only after resuming windows from hibernation. After a fresh restart it stops going to sleep mode. But after i resume from hibernation it stats happening again.

Any thoughts?
