My Dell laptop keeps going to sleep when I'm gaming (GPU is very high). I don't know why it keeps doing that. It's running Windows 10. Any suggestions? Power settings seem fine.

    It may depend on the game that you're trying to play. You did not mention a minimum configurations of Dell laptop, like RAM/Speed/Processor etc. It seems that, it is not going to be capable of playing many games at all.

    Please download/install HWMonitor & leave it open while you're playing a game. When your laptop goes to sleep, check the max temperatures of CPU and/ or GPU.

    Here is download link for free utility: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
