Hello everybody.

Since a few days my PC developed an unusual behaviour: it goes to sleep mode at random intervals !!
It is very annoying and sometimes it does that at windows start up for several times...

I had microsoft security essential installed and read on some forums that it could be the reason for this problem: I unistalled that.
Then I run online scanned from ESET nd Bitdefender: all clean.

Then I installed avas free edition (as I was without any anti-virus software). Did a complete system scan with no problem.

I messed up with the power consumpion settings with no results.

The only solution I could find was to use the software "Dontsleep.exe" which I found googling around: it works !!

Anyway I am quite sure that I contracted a very annoying new kind of infection but I am unable to pinpoint the source of the problem.

I looked up all the running services and application at windows sturtup and disabled a lot of them with no results.

What else can I do ??

Dudes, no one eveb replied to me but I figured out the problem anyway !!

It was the keyboard chord (inside the casa) which activated the sllep button at the slightes movement !!

Replaced keybord, problem fixed...

Topic closed as far as I am concerned
