I have Dell Precision 5510 with Windows 10 and I am encountering issued when playing Fallout 4.

When I play the laptop is going to sleep after some time. How can I diagnose what is happening? Can it be caused by overheating or something similar?

  • Overheating will not cause sleep. It will cause a shutdown. – DavidPostill Sep 15 '16 at 17:46

  • Look in the system event log for Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power events. – DavidPostill Sep 15 '16 at 17:52
  • Sleep Reason: Application API – user1563721 Sep 15 '16 at 18:03
  • What else? There must be other information with the event. – DavidPostill Sep 15 '16 at 19:53
