System re-booting...

I had to reset my BIOS due to another problem.
I hadn't saved my BIOS settings in Eeprom so I don't remember exactly what I had before.

My system is shutting down/re-starting after a period of time (20 min or so of non- use).

I don't know if it's because of a setting in BIOS or a WinXP setting?

How can I find out which it is and stop it?

I have Power Management ACPI Suspend Type in BIOS set to S1 & S3.
I have my WinXP power scheme set to Home/Office Desk
Turn off monitor: after 20 min.
Turn of hard disks: never
System standby: after 20 min.

To me, standby does not mean re-boot.
Any ideas what I should do?
TIA

Hi BleapingTom,

You should check Power Settings of your Operating System.

to check Power Settings Follow this Steps - :

1. Click on START >> CONTROL PANEL >> POWER OPTIONS.

check there any Power Settings is enabled if yes then change these settings....

And also the Scan your Computer from any Anti-Virus may be it is also the Virus Problem.
