I have "Never" chosen on "Put the computer to sleep" in the Power Options interface, but the machine still shuts off eventually, don't know when exactly.

Is there another setting I should look at?

Yes, click on Advanced Power Settings, under Sleep, you must also disable Hibernation.

Go into your power settings, then select the advanced options, it will be location under sleep, you need to deselect the hibernation feature, if this doesn't resolve the issue let me know. Thanks, and good luck!
