    Run Memtest on your ram and see if you get any errors.

    Try running the games without any Antivirus programs running in the background.

    Fill out your system specs in the User CP and click on the show box.

    Are you using onboard sound or sound card?


    EDIT: Also, check the event viewer in your administrative tools to see if anything or what is happening when the problem occurs, such as, misbehaving drivers/services/scheduled events/etc.

    Your description worries me, it sounds just like when my former graphics card was dying, screen turns off windows stuck and a buzzing sound coming from speakers, when did this start happening.
    To eliminate hardware fault do you have a spare graphics card\better PSU to test in your PC?

    My friend had a similar problem on his older desktop. if its similar it is a problem with your graphics card overheating or dying. two steps to take would be to open the computer and clean the graphics card cooler thoroughly. And second of all get a friends graphics card and try his in your computer. this will rule out completely any problems with your graphics card. Which i think it is.

    Btw. its not your pc outputting "power saving mode". but instead its the monitor saying power saving mode since your graphics card is crashing and the screen is not recieving a signal and going to standby.

    Is every game goes blank after a min or 2 min use a stopwatch to get that exactly, After that done keep your mouse moving everytime and see if it goes blank or not.

    If this does not helps you then this is not a Power Option Problem, Maybe there is a option of this in the AMD Driver Settings explore the settings and see if you find something that helps, I don't have a GPU so i cannot tell about GPU driver.
