    Starting last week my computer started to go into sleep mode all by itself.
    I thought I pressed the sleep key on my keyboard and didn't do anything about it.

    Now my computer goes to sleep without warning every.. 5 sec. ~ 5 minutes.

    I didn't install any new hardware and I've scanned my computer for viruses, ad/spyware.

    I tried switching keyboards and some other stuff but it didn't help at all..
    Any help is appreciated.
