Check programs at Clean Boot
Check your third-Party installed programs – maybe they have a setting that puts your PC to sleep. After doing so, Perform Clean Boot and troubleshoot the issue manually if need be.

Prevent your computer from going to sleep
If you want to prevent your computer from locking and going to sleep, then I suggest taking advantage of a program known as Caffeine.

Install v9 or 10 of the Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI)
This applies if you are using an HP laptop. If your motherboard doesn’t support Hybrid Sleep, we recommend downgrading the Intel MEI to version 9 or 10. So let’s walk you through this easy process.
Visit the HP Drivers & Downloads page, right, and seek out the driver known as MEI driver version 9 from the Driver Chipset section of the website.
We understand that version 1.5M works for most models, so download this one first before anything else.
Download the driver and install it. If you receive a dialog box warning, just ignore it and move on.
