    Laptop going to sleep when idle (power options set to "Never")

    When plugged in, this Toshiba laptop goes into sleep mode at roughly two minutes of idle time. When plugged in, I have the power options set to "Never". This just recently began occurring. Any ideas?

    Is it actually sleeping or just blanking the screen?
