Is there anyway to stop the Powerbook from falling aslweep every five minutes. If I dont touch the touchpad for a few minutes my powerbook shutsoff, it wouldnt be a problem except it knocks me offline and I am the type of user who uses the computer for awhile then doesnt touch it for 5 minutes comes back for awhile repeat repeat. So how do I stop this random shut off.

You should be able to adjust that buy going to your System Preferences and finding the Energy Saver panel. All the options are there.
