    Computer shuts down when idle?

    have made sure that all the settings i can find in power options for shutting the PC down when idle are either set to never or disabled but must have missed something somewhere? after 20 minutes or so the PC shuts itself off..... any ideas?

    I originally suspected a non standard heatsink on the asus mobo but ruled that out with rpm set to 100.

    Never mind: just saw this post
