Sony Vaio freezes up when idle


Established Member
Can someone help diagnose this problem?

my laptop for the last few weeks will freeze up when left idle, although if I'm using it, nothing goes wrong (well not usually anyway)

I've checked all my settings to make sure it's nothing to do with the screensaver, and other power options, but to no avail.

I'm having to put the laptop to sleep when not in use otherwise i'm constantly having to restart the thing by holding the power button down.

any ideas?

Model is VGN AR71m running windows vista

thanks for reading :)
