    Hi delmec......
    Had your same problem. Changed my power settings for monitor and hard drive to NEVER and the power scheme to HOME/OFFICE. I haven't had a problem since.
    Good Luck !

    What mtbird suggested is what suggest also. One other thing you may try first though, is turn off any screensaver you may have.
