    Computer randomly sleeps, high cpu after 5 minutes idle

    Earlier today I was downloading files from my browser and my computer went to sleep halfway in. This random sleeping happens occasionally. The event viewer doesn't mention anything about overheating, it always says it's just idle (event 42):

    Sometimes it goes to sleep even while my mouse is moving, gives the same reason.

    Another issue is my cpu starts acting up after sitting 5 minutes idle, happens every single time.

    I made a thread about this a few months ago. I thought I found the answer but I didn't. Seems to be related to 'System and compressed memory'.

    It is normal for a system to hit high CPU use right after coming out of sleep state. Usually it is the malware software scanning the system.
