Windows 7: Computer goes to sleep when not set to.

07 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Computer goes to sleep when not set to.

When ever my computer is idle for a while i think 45 mins, it goes to sleep for some reason. I've changed the power settings to never turn off the display or put the computer to sleep. When its about to go to sleep it changes my color scheme to basic and then like 5 secs later it goes to sleep.

Could be something with your graphics card or possibly the bios.

It`s sleeping not hybernating, correct ?
