My PC going to sleep mode on its own
Aug 26, 2011, 3:36 PM
Sometimes I leave the computer running when I go away from it and when I come back like an hour later I find it to be in sleep mode. How can I prevent such behavior?
Asus P8Z68-V Pro
Intel i5 2500k
Gigabyte GTX 570
Corsair Vegenance 8gb
Corsair HX 750W
Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit
Thanks for any help!
