How long after you start the computer does it go into "Sleep Mode"? If it takes a few minutes, have you tried changing the settings by RIGHT clicking on a blank area of the screen, choose "Properties", then choose the "Screen Saver" tab and the "Monitor/Power Management" settings should be at the bottom of the window. Set the "Standby" or "Hibernate" options to "Never".
Will the computer start correctly in "Safe Mode"? Restart the computer, pressing the F8 key once per second, till it loads a selection screen. Use the up and down arrows to select "Safe Mode", press enter, and the computer will load into a safe mode. It looks like a normal screen but with Safe Mode in each of the four corners. When you?re done, restart the machine and it will boot normally.
Have you checked the computer for viruses and spyware? Which programs do you use? Do you have a current antivirus program, and if so, which one?
Hope this helps and let us know more.
