Default Comp goes into power save mode out of no where.

Recently, mostly during games, my monitor will go black and it will go into power save mode, while what ever sound was going on starts looping. i Rencently got a new PSU so i thought it was that, but after switching, it still happends. I dident change any of the power managment settings so you can rule that out too. Wtfs going on!
Also the only way to turn the comp back on is to turn the power switch on the psu off and on.

Sounds like the video card is overheating. What are the temps on the card, mainboard, and CPU?

try this: go to control panel / click on power options / where it says power schemes, check to make sure that the correct scheme matches your setup..for example :

if you have a laptop / setting scheme should be <portable laptop>
if you have a desktop pc / setting will be <home/office desk>

Nope it also happens when not playing games, like just talking on aim and listening to music. But happends much faster when i play games. Usually after about 5 mins into the game.
