No power supply doesn't have anything to do with it. If your psu was insufficient you pc would completely power off. What brand is it anyways?

Did you completely sweep your old drivers and install the latest nvidia drivers?

I am thinking it may be a driver problem.

use driver sweeper, boot into safe mode, wipe your video drivers. Boot into normal windows and reinstall drivers

when it turns off can you still do stuff like turn the caps lock on and off (check ur keyboard light)

if you cannot then its not going to sleep but your experiencing a crash.
most prob related to your graphics card or graphics card driver
