My Computer Keeps On Going Into Sleep Mode

My problem is fairly simple, just my computer going into sleep mode around every three minutes or so if I don't use my mouse or keyboard. This usually isn't that big of a problem, but when I'm reading a long body of text and not using my mouse or keyboard, it can irk me a little when the screen goes black. I've tried nearly every option on my Windows 7 control panel, but to no avail. Even with my power plan settings directing my computer to never go to sleep and to never turn off its display, it still does the same thing. Strangely enough, this problem only arose after I got a new Logitech M510 wireless mouse. So, people of Tom's Hardware, what do I do to fix this?

Check to see if your screen saver is set to "Blank." If so, change it to "None."

Check to see if your screen saver is set to "Blank." If so, change it to "None." That is exactly what worked for me too. I tried many other changes in Power Options first to no avail. My screen saver was set to BLANK and I changed it to NONE. Before the change my display would go black every 20 seconds or so until I activated the screen with the mouse. Thank you very much. Joaquin

Tonight I was watching movie on my TV being broadcasted via HDMI from my Laptop.

It was annoying to force my laptop from dying every now and then. (Somehow I was not able to change power management settings to never sleep, don’t know why!!!)
So here is the powershell script solution :
only move mouse ( http://sharepoint.asia/can-i-stop-my-screen-from-lockin... )
