I am using windows 7 64bit, with Dell inspiron 14R core i5. The OS gets standby mode automatically event I am working. I have turned off all sleep mode in the power option to "Never", but it seems like no effect.
How to solve this problem? Please help me.

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

Thank you. I wish you luck at the Dell store since we otherwise could not solve the issue.
