How can I prevent my B50 computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating?

I am using a B50 for continous recording because of the space and power consumption reasons. I followed various instruxtions to turn off the sleep and hibernation. However in spite of doing everything possible, it goes into sleep/hybernation after about 48 hours and I have to go to the computer to restart it. 

The following are the current settings:
