Windows 10 PC restarts after sleep.

My ASUS  R510 JX PC runs Windows 10 (new, not upgraded from Win 8). I bought it in Jan 2016.

Each time it goes to sleep, it restarts when I press a key or click -  especially if it's been sleeping for more than 5 minutes ( approx.)

Unsaved work is lost each time - I've suffered a lot because of this and sometimes just can't remember to save my work when I get up to attend a call or something.

Need help urgently - know any fixes?
