I own a Dell desktop that runs Windows 7 Home premium with 4 GBs of ram;  Whenever I leave the computer idle for  more than 10 or 15 minutes, or if I attempt to put it to sleep, it crashes.  I've changed my virus software, made sure there were no physical obstructions, ensured that the fan was clean and the pc wasn't overheating, I've monitored the cpu performance etc with the resource monitor, run maleware bytes, ran a disk scan, updated all software and drivers, disabled extensions and plug-ins, reduced the number of programs that I've installed to just a handful and I've performed a clean install of Windows 7 with no success;  Can anyone please help me?
