Windows 7: Computer on "standby" problem

Computer on "standby" problem

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

So I am a torrent downloader and before you read further, yes I know the risks involved to the system. This is not about that though, its about the computers performance at night in general.

I have my settings set so that I can download my stuff at night while I am in bed. Also I run my anti-virus, malware, etc. at night as well. I shut it down during the day instead. The problem I'm having is that at some point during the night it goes on a sort of standby mode even though all my custom settings tell it not to do that at all. When I wake up my programs aren't running but the screen is still on. When I move the mouse everything starts running again no problem. Please help!!!

That was mentioned in passing. The issue is not the downloads, its the system performance that is the problem
