I don't know what this could be, I set my system to power off the monitor instead of using a screen saver. When ever I try to power it back on the screen will come on with the desktop as I left it, but the computer freezes.

So I reboot and during the reboot it checks my C drive for consistency, never finds a problem. Other than that the system works fine, and it doesn't happen every time, more like once or twice a week. It happened twice today which got me fed up enough to ask the community. I have no clue what it could be, I thought it might be the C drive going out, but it's a new SSD, actually it's a replacement as the first one I bought died after about a month and OCZ sent me a new one.

Does the system power down the HDD too? Might be a firmware incompatibility - make sure the HDD stays on and try again?

not sure, it is the standard monitor power down setting in Win7. I'm pretty sure that the SSD's firmware is out of date, but I wasn't sure if that was the problem or something else.
