My PC has developed this problem twice. When it first happened I had to re install windows to fix it. Now it has come back and it hasn't even been two weeks. I have had my PC for months and it wasn't until about a month ago when this problem appeared the first time. When I put my PC is sleep mode or when it does it automatically I will click on the keyboard, mouse, and the front of my PC and everything looks like it will boot up like normal except that my screen doesn't show. I have to reset and on start up instead of saying starting windows it says resuming windows. Again after that - just a black screen. I reset again and then it says failed to resume windows and I have the option to either try to resume again or to just restart.

In my experience, Windows 7 has never been great at resuming from sleep or hibernation so I do not use it.

I would just turn off sleep and hibernate and use a blank screen saver. You may be able to use it successfully if you don't allow some key components to sleep but I have found that more work than it is worth.

Is this a laptop on battery power where you really want to mess with power saving?

Its a desktop. I accually fixed the problem though. I removed my Physx GPU and then sleep mode worked fine and it still does now. I don't understand why this happened I know it isn't a power problem. I have a 750 watt PSU. Could this have been a driver problem?

Many times specific components don't sleep correctly.
