please help!

system:
GA-Z68X-UD4-B3
G Skill ripjaws 1600 8gb
i5 2500K

ok, where do I begin.... So my computer went into sleep mode.... its really hit or miss with this computer so when I finally get it back up and running, I will completely disable sleep mode.

Sometimes i can click the mouse and it wakes up with no problem, but sometimes it would reboot on its own and just keep trying to boot and restart.... continuous boot loop.... so when i want to remedy this, I just clear the cmos by unplugging the power supply and disconnecting the cmos battery.... it always worked up until tonight.

I tried to pull the battery and left it out for 60 minutes.. popped it back in and it won't let me get into bios. None of my keyboards will light up for me to hit delete to get into bios.... not even my PS2 keyboard.... it will just continue to turn on, and show the logo screen telling me to hit various keys for various functions and then it will reboot on its own and it will just continue to do this and will not let me hit a key to get into the BIOS screens....

I also tried to reset cmos by pullin the plug and putting a screwdriver on the reset cmos pins. I held it there for a good 10 seconds.... plugged it back in and tried to power up again and it goes back to the same old bullshiet and wont let me get into bios..... Any ideas?????

I believe it was just a corrupt bios... not 100% sure because it has dual bios and i haven't tried to flash the bios... I just exchanged for a new mobo and it was working fine again.... wish i could figure out how to use sleep without problems but im just gonna completely divert from using it because I don't wanna have to buy thermal compound over and over

BTW I was having a similar problem for several months and across several BIOS - but I saw on another site that disabling hybrid sleep might work - I did this and so far I'm having no issue waking from sleep (P8Z68-V MB - BIOS 3203 2/12/2012

I would love for it to start working but i'm scared i'd have to buy a new mobo which I can not currently afford. Thanks for the info but I'll just stop being lazy and shut it down when not in use.
