    Do you mean the PC crashes or just the burning software? What burning package are you using? Have you checked the event logs, they rarely pinpoint the problem but can indicate the general nature of it.

    Its Nero 6.

    I leave it,

    Come back, the screen is off, it wont wake up from keyboard strokes, and the lights are on.

    Im thinking it *might* be to do with the energy saver, so ill try switching it off.

    You disabled powersaving and the screensaver, yes? So what was shown on-screen once the PC had locked-up? What was the last thing Nero displayed?
