I am having a problem with my pc, when I put my computer to sleep, and I press the space bar, the indicator light on the front of the case lights up, and freezes, I tapped the space bar again, and waited a few minutes, nothing. I then pressed the power button once, and waited. Once again nothing happened, I had to force shutdown. When the pc shut down, the power light remained on, this doesn't usually happen. I turned on the pc and before the OS started up, I got a unsuccessful shutdown message. Then I started windows normally, and a blue screen flashed, and the pc restarted with a beep. Then it worked. This happens whenever I put my pc into sleep mode. I have been avoiding to use sleep mode for a while (over 4 months), and I was wondering if there is a solution to this.
I have the following system (only a few months old):
evga x58 3 sli
6gb ram 1600mhz
1.5 tb hard drive
