Screen occasionally goes black, can't turn it back on without a system restart.

Title says it all. Sometimes I'll leave like a GB download running, and I'll come back after like an hour or so, and my display will be black, and pressing buttons, moving the mouse, or anything like that doesn't bring it back on. In fact, the only way I can get it to come on is to press and hold the power button on my case, which I don't like doing. So if anyone could give me some help, I'd really appreciate it. This is the only issue I'm having with my computer.

System:
AMD FX-6300
HD 7950
SeaSonic 620w PSU
8GB DDR3 1333mhz Ram


It doesn't do this whenever I use it, it happens occasionally when I leave it alone or idling or something.

It's going into forced hibernate, where it wont come back on unless you press the power button, or restart. Go to your power options and turn everything on to 'never' - that might help.
