Default Shutting Down Issue

I just built a new desktop and I am having a bit of trouble. It seems if I leave it alone too long even after adjusting the power options that it still goes to "sleep." I can leave it to download at night and when I come back it won't resume. I try hard booting and still nothing. After hard booting a few times it will eventually come back up.

Here is my setup.
-Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
-ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-CORSAIR Vengeance 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model
-Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
-32GB Sandisk SSD for OS
-1TB Western Digital Slave Drive
-630 Watt Raidmax Power supply
-24x Samsung DVD/CD Burner

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe try re-installing Win 7? I had a problem like this with my new build and it wouldn't boot, re-installing cleared it right up!

You could try and read the motherboard book and see if a BIOS setting could cause this.
