Laptop going into sleep mode unexpectadly


Thread Starter

Hi everyone,

I had this issue the first time just 10 minutes ago. I was attending a meeting (so not really touching my keyboard or mouse at all) when my screen suddenly went to black for a second or 2. I moved my mouse and the screen came back, only for it to go black again 2 seconds later. It blinked like that for 4 or 5 times. I kept moving my mouse and pressing buttons, but that didn't help. Then the laptop entered sleep mode, so I turned it 'back on', and the issue started again so I just restarted the device and now the problem is gone. Normally I'd wait with seeking help and look for solutions myself, but I have a few exam meetings later today. During those my laptop absolutely cannot die. The most recent changes that could have an effect on my system are the installation of Bitdefender (last week), and turning off windows updates for the next seven days (this morning).
