Can't wake up from sleep mode

After I wake my laptop up from sleeping, I encounter really odd functionality. When I click into an application, it appears to rapidly blink, as if you were alt-tabbing out then into it again super fast. When you open a browser and try to type in it, it provides no text - instead it seems to do various other tasks, such as if I were to hit "Y" it would open the YouTube bookmark. If I try and hit minimize/close - it does not allow me to do so. Also if I try and hit the shut down button, it will close all of the applications, that can be shut down (ie avast won't close), in the window's task bar like it normally would, but it never shuts down and I'm left at desktop again. It all seems like a nasty virus, but after I force restart the computer it works as intended.

Are you using an SSD by chance? SSDs tend to have a lot of problems with sleep mode and hibernation. If not, then you could try scanning your system with AVG Linux. The AVG Rescue Disk scans your system before it boots so that you can detect any problems that might not expose themselves after Windows starts.

I do have an msata, so is this a fixable problem? I wouldn't mind it knowing it wasn't going to harm my laptop. It's just that when it happens it makes you think there's a something very wrong with your machine.

It's just a problem with NAND storage still being a fairly new technology. I almost always turn off my PC because it takes just as long for it to turn on from sleep mode as it is from cold boot. It won't hurt your SSD and depending on the SSD may not be a problem at all. Read more about it here: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2011/06/ask-ars-do-solid...
