hibernates by itself

  vally 07:45 21 May 2008

running XP,just fitted new m/board, cpu bundle and set bios defaults(also-hibernate is enabled)
all works fine but eventually it will suddenly hibernate itself once, sometimes three times and I can't find a setting that I can alter to stop this happening, I'm guessing it's something in the bios
the m/board is a MSI P4M900M3

Have a look in `Control Panel/Power Options/Hibernate` and see if `Hibernate` is checked. If it is, uncheck it and see if this cures the problem. Also look at the `Power Schemes` and make sure they are set at `Never`.
