Computer Putting Itself In Sleep Mode
For the past week my computer will sometimes put itself in sleep mode while I am using it. It doesn't matter whether I'm playing games, word processing or on the internet.

Could be a hardware problem. How old is it? Are all the connections okay?

Is it working off a battery? Is it set to shut down when the battery is low?

The computer is only a couple of years old and up until this problem started was working fine. I have wondered if the storms we've had lately may have something to do with it. Twice the power went off and came back on immediately while I was on the computer. This has been a few weeks ago though, but we are in our tornado season. Usually, when these storms are predicted I shut the computer down, but the couple of times I mentioned, we didn't have any warnings. If there is something wrong witht the hardware I wouldn't know what to look for. I have antivirus software, but I suppose a virus can always get through.
