I am running Ubuntu Kiosk 12.04 on an Intel DC3217IYE, but it keeps shutting down when i leave it on during the night.

I have tried: Power settings. dconf-editor and zeroing everything having to do with idle/sleep/shutdown-timers. I installed windows 7 and left it powered on during a weekend to make sure it wasn't the bios that was messing it up.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i would fix this? I should add, that I'm a complete novice when it comes to this OS.

Thanks in advance
