Hi, there's a problem I've been having on my laptop (Asus M51S, OS: vista home premium) Essentially what happens is: I'll be gaming and my computer will act as though I've engaged sleep mode. This only happens when I'm on a game, not on youtube or anything else. I've also noticed it seems NOT to happen if my battery is plugged in, but not charging. It will sleep even running solely on battery, or if it's charging. It's not a problem with the battery, I've swapped it for a battery from a laptop of the exact same model, no change. To the best of my knowledge all drivers are up to date.
Any help is appreciated.

just noticed how rather hot my computer is running, if that might have anything to do with it.
