computer crashes

If I run my computer, with apps or no apps it will crash if i let it go to sleep, not hibernate, but the screen saber will come on and the monitor will shut off ( the computer is supposed do this). heat is not a problem and the system is not overclocked. I have played long drawn out video games on it. so i have no idea what is going on
this is my rig
asus a8n premium
1024 gig of ocz ram 1 stick
nvidia 7800gtx
550w antec

...nVidia drivers from Work great. I'm assuming you can get just about everything else from

If you still have download hiccups, scan for spyware. If it doesn't work after the scans, download and run WinsockXPFix (which you should try to download first).
