Does Dell have its own power manager? IBM does, which is why I ask. Check power management in BIOS, Dell and Windows (all three places if applicable). Windows 7 won't go to sleep on its own, so it must be a power setting somewhere. ... Thinkpads_User

Thanks! I have checked the BIOS, and there isn't any power management function.
I have sent this damn Dell Laptop to the supplier, and they said: there is no problem with your laptop.

Hmmm - Windows 7 is not a problem is this way in my experience. So if power management is not a problem, and if Dell (supplier) says not hardware, then you might wish to explore for viruses.  

Also, look at running SFC /scannow and also trying to restore to a prior period.

Failing all that, you may need to reimage.  ... Thinkpads_User
