    System goes to sleep within seconds I stop typing

    As soon as I stop typing, the system goes to sleep after approximately 5 seconds. All my power options is Never Sleep.
    Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi, forgive a basic question- are you sure it's going to sleep?
    (For example, can you confirm you get a logon prompt on resuming?)

    Have you checked your screen saver settings- a blank screen saver might explain what you're seeing.

    It's always worth search the forum- there are many many threads on sleep issues... enough to, well, send you to sleep..

    This turns up from time to time.
