Computer sleeps randomly after upgrade

Hi all,
I have a Dell system which was working perfectly fine until freshly installed Windows 10 Pro 64 bit on.
What happens is that EVERY DAY at 11:50 AM system goes into sleep mode. It is every day even while I am actively using it, everything stops and the computer goes to sleep.
All sleep settings are off including PCI-E, USB and hibernate.

See the following two system logs:

Event-42, Kernel-Power: The system is entering sleep.

Yes. "All sleep settings are off including PCI-E, USB and hibernate."
Plus, the computer goes to sleep around same time, every day WHILE actively using it.
