    Hello,

    I recently built a new computer about 3 weeks ago and installed windows 8.1 It has been working perfectly, including sleep mode. Starting yesterday however, every time the computer goes into sleep mode, it immediately shuts down. I tried turning Hypernate off with the command prompt command, and also the bios setting for the power supply, and it still does it. My power supply is an Antec higher current Gamer 750m and the computer has been in and out of sleep mode many times before yesterday. I never installed any new programs or drivers either.

    Have you attempted to run the "Power" troubleshooter?
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\System and Security -> Power

    These types of problems are always a very difficult issue to troubleshoot.
    Maybe some details about the specs on the actual system might help, in case someone with a similar rig has something to contribute.

    The fact that it seems to be an issue that developed within the last 24 hours might suggest that a system restore to yesterday (or the day before) might provide some help.

    What about the power troubleshooter? Anything there that would suggest an issue?
    How about event viewer? Have you checked there for anything regarding the issue?
    Is your machine shutting down completely or is it rebooting?

    It was shutting down completely. I reinstalled windows keeping the old programs and stuff and it seems to have fixed it. IT may have been something Windows update did. I normally set windows update to "never" and I just do it manually every now and then. Been doing that for years to avoid problems. This time I had it on automatics, and there was problems.

    That sounds like a very reasonable assumption and may very well be accurate.
    Maybe this time around catch them all up early on in the game, but do so in small batches, checking your power saving (sleep / shutdown) issue after a reboot, after each batch.
