So I've recently built a new PC running on x99 motherboard/Windows 10. Last night when I went to sleep the computer decided it would be a good idea to go into sleep mode and wake itself almost immediately. So when I woke myself up I was greeted by a sleep lock screen demanding for a password even though I have disabled sleep in power settings. Computer is supposed to run 24/7 no screensavers no sleep modes nothing like that.


Event log gives me this:

Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power 42

The system is entering sleep.
Sleep Reason: Application API
Now that doesn't sound like a lot does it? Doesn't say the reason it went to sleep in the first place. So I'd like to figure out what caused it and prevent it from further happening. Could really use some help please
I've attached a full event log so you may see for yourself and perhaps make a connection. (read from bottom)
