    Since I have installed Windows 7 my computer goes to sleep everytime it idle's. Like earlier today, I was installing WoW and I went to go watch a movie and came back and my computer was off, I powered it on and it resumed installing.

    And just now, I was watching TV came back and my computer was off and when I powered it on it BSOD.

    Is there a setting where I can turn this off? Because this never happend in Vista, and this started happening yesterday when I installed Windows 7.

    On another note, if you're hitting the power button to wake it up from sleep, that's where the issue is coming from. All that is required in moving the mouse or a keystroke, at least that's what I always do.
