PC locks up



I tend to leave the PC in this room on, as long as I'm around downstairs.

Over the last week, the PC has taken to locking up whenever it's left for more than about 10 minutes.

The only new software that I've installed, that is still there, is an updated form of SpyBot. (I installed something that said it would help me change WAV files (of interviews) to other formats, but have uninstalled it).

Suggestions would be most welcome - any idea what's causing this?

The system is XP, I think it's up to date with security patches, etc.; SpyBot is running as I type...? (I've checked and it tells me it does not need to be defragged).

TIA

Is you PC set to go on standby after 10 mins?

Nope - though I admit I had to check!
