Unhappy Computer Goes To Sleep

A couple of weeks ago I downloaded a new version of Internet Explorer (7.0.5730.11). I regret that I did so now, as I prefer the previous version. However, ever since that occasion my computer shuts down if I leave it unattended for a period of time. Moving my mouse or entering keystrokes will not 'wake it up'. What I have to do is hold down the power button on the CPU for several moments, and it usually will reboot. Does anyone have any suggestion how to avoid this problem? Thanks

Try Control Panel - Power Options..
Also, check how the BIOS is set for hibernation..
