    The complete system backup was installed on my D: drive.
    Your problem is if as stated above.....you have two master boot records connected up together confusing the computer....causing the switch.
    Solution......Disconnect "D" Drive.

    Well, that might resolve the issue, but it certainly would eliminate any backup capability in the computer.

    Oops. Sorry. Found it. It's set to sleep after 20 minutes, which, again, seems to me to not be a problem since the display pops up while a game (or other apps such as Word) is actively being played.
    It finally occurred to me the screen shot you posted showed the "Turn off hard disk after" setting was "Never". I set the setting to "Never" on my PC.

    The computer was in use last night for about three hours, and again this morning for over two hours so far. The problem has not recurred. I don't understand why the fix worked, but apparently it has. I am most grateful for your help.

    Thank you very much!

    Simple reason, every time it's accessed (or any other disk because that setting works on all or none), it wakes up and triggers new storage found notification displaying it's contents.
