Laptop shutsdown shut down in sleep mode

Original title: What can I do to prevent a shut down when I put the system (Lenovo 3000 G530 running Windows 7 Home Premium) to sleep?

This has been happening since May of this year. I had cleaned a part that had a lot of built-up dust. After I turned on the laptop, I went ahead and put it to sleep. However, instead of the computer going into standby, it automatically shuts down. I might have something wrong, bit can someone help me with this situation?
