Angry Windows sleep mode acts as a shutdown?!

It's extremely annoying. You know when you leave the PC alone for about 20 minutes and then the moniter goes black. I used to just be able to move the mouse then windows shows, but now when I move the mouse nothing happens, pushing keys does nothing, I have to turn off the PC and turn it on again.

I haven't done anything cept installed my radeon 9250 PCI card, but it's been in before so I'm confused.

Is there any option to fix this?

It was totally normal before I put in the vid card, but like I said, I have it in before...

Odd check your power management settings and check the chipset mobo and other such drivers.

Can you put in your old card and see if you run into the same problem that will single out if something is corrupt or your video card is doing harm.
