    hi, recently i have this problem, a few minutes into a game, my screen turns black, saying it's going to energy save mode as if i have turned off the pc, and i keep hearing the game's sound but it's stuck as well. the computer is stuck i can't get back to the desktop in any way and i have to push the reset button on the computer. it happens every time.

    Could do with some more info really.

    What is the make and model of our PC, assuming its a 'big brand' make like HP or Dell. If its a custom / self build what is the exact make and model of the motherboard, RAM, CPU, Graphics, Sound card, Power Supply etc?

    Is the problem in specific to any particular game / games or does it happen with everything?

    What are you system temperatures like? Try something like HWMonitor to see.
