Why does my laptop go into sleep mode when playing video games?

Why does my laptop go into sleeping mode when playing video games? Some have told me it's because it gets to hot, but the air coming out of the laptop isn't very hot. It goes into sleeping mode even when playing games that aren't very heavy like Minecraft.

Re: Why does my laptop go into sleep mode when playing video games?

PacMaze,

Go into the settings- system-power and sleep. Make sure the settings are not to let the computer go to sleep/hibernate under each category that meets your needs. Also, click on the Additional Power settings under this section as well.

  1. Click on Start.
  2. Open Settings.
  3. Choose System.
  4. Go to Power & sleep.
  5. See if any of the current settings enable Sleep when using your laptop. If so, change the settings.
