Check your power settings.
What computer have you got and what do you do with it?

I know of no such program - but you can go to Control Panel - Power Options and adjust settings from there.

You can use Power save mode, but if you use the Laptop its got to run on something. be it battery or mains. If you want something to run a long time on Battery you need a Netbook like I have a Samsung nc10 can get up to 9 hour but as I have it set about 6 or 7
