Hi,

I just finished my first build and I have a little problem. When the PC goes to sleep, I can't seem to wake it up. This problem does not occur all the time but it does happen often enough that I have to restart the computer. The mouse and keyboard (both USB) are unresponsive but are powered and display is not detecting any signal. Any help would be appreciated.

Build:
Windows 7 Professional 64bit
i5 3570k
16 GB Ram - Gskill
GTX 660 Ti SLI - ASUS
Corsair HX750
p8v77-LK MB - ASUS
256 GB SSD - Samsung (OS)
1 TB 7200 rpm HDD - Seagate

I turned off hibernation if that helps any
Thanks

What baffles me the most is that it's not a consistent problem

I updated BIOS and tested the PC by letting it sit for 3 hours. Seems to work now! I'll keep testing it and see if that solved the problem. Thanks!

In all instances that the PC went to sleep, I was able to wake it up. It works, thanks!
