Hi, I'm new to Fedora so I'm not sure if this is Fedora issue - maybe it has to do something with Gnome but I never experienced this behavior on other distros. The problem is that I can't prevent my computer (Sony VAIO ultrabook) from going to sleep - if I start a computer and don't logon it is is going to sleep after some time. If I logon the computer is awake all the time (I had to completely turn off power management in Gnome) but If I press lock button the lock screen is showed for a moment and computer goes to sleep immediately. Am I missing something? Can anyone help me?

I think this is not configuration problem. After lock-suspend-resume I get an error report for xorg-x11-drv-intel. The report says that this bug is already in bugzilla (id 1206922).

sergiomb, lsatenstein thanks for your help :-)

At the top right corner, click on the bottom left most icon (system) In that display of various settings, click on Power. Fix up that setting to please yourself.
