I assume it's a laptop/notebook; have you tried looking into the power
settings - are you running on mains or battery?
Look under Power Options in Control panel (or Vista equivalent, I'm
thinking in XP terms here...), and check to see what "level" of power
management you're using e.g. there should be settings for turning hard
disks off or the screen or going to hibernate or sleep modes, depending
on your use of the machine, and you can save different "profiles" for
your power settings. You probably want the "always on" option since if
you're using the mains power adapter, battery power isn't an issue.
I can't explain, though, why it would just turn off in the middle of
what you were doing. Perhaps the screensaver is set to "blank screen"
