Answers :

Check your screen saver settings, and make sure your system is not set to hibernate after a period of inactivity. See links here and here

But the most likely cause of freezing systems are driver and hardware conflicts. Make sure you have applied sp1, as you have nVidia GeForce graphics card and there's a history of driver conflicts with vista for these cards, that are resolved by updating the drivers. For more info on that, click here.and here.
Your best bet is to start at windows update and see if there are any hardware updates available for your system, then troubleshoot video and graphics from Device Manager, then work on performance tweaks..

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
