i turn off my sleep mode, and never had an issue until just recently. I now find mainly when I wake up in the morning that my laptop has gone into sleep mode. I have checked my power settings to see if somehow that was changed, but everything is still set to never... any thoughts?
When you set it to never sleep, did you go through all the options and make sure nothing causes it to sleep? To do so you have to go into "Control Panel" and then "Power Options". Click on "Change plan settings" next to the plan you are using and then on the next screen click "Change advanced power settings". In this new window go through the list. Checking everything, to make sure nothing is set to sleep.
Side note: Leaving it on 24/7 isn't the wisest of choices.
