I have a G50 which when you hold down the shift key for more than a few seconds, i.e. to select muntiple files, puts the machine to sleep.
I have altered the power setting so that on batter or mains the laptop will not go to sleep.

Welcome to the Forums.
Can you try to boot in Safe Mode and observe.
If the machine works fine in Safe Mode then it's likely that there's an application running in the background that's triggering the sleep function while holding down the Shift key. To isolate, follow this guide on how to perform a clean boot and observe the functionality in Normal mode.
Let me know how it goes.

I have the same problem. The laptop goes to sleep when the left shift key is pressed. I've tried starting the laptop in safe mode but the same problem occurs. Any ideas what can be done next?
