Screen stays black after waking computer from sleep mode

Over the past few months I began having this recurring problem where the computer goes into sleep mode, next I click the mouse to wake it and the lights and fans go on but the screen stays black. I then have to perform a hard restart where I was usually getting the "start in safe mode" screen, but lately I have also been getting BSODs.

My system build:
Gigabyte G31M-ES2L (rev 2.0)
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Transcend 4 GB DDR2 800
Gigabyte HD 5770
Cooler Master Elite 335
Seasonic M12II 620W
Mouse Razer Abyssus

If anyone can help I'd appreciate it :) 

Thanks

Hi :) 

Turn OFF sleep and hibernation modes.... we do that to ALL computers we sell....

It causes too many problems and has since Windows 98..... they ALWAYS go in to sleep/hibernation and quite often don't come out, as you have noticed...

All the best Brett :)

Hi Brett,

Thanks. I turned off sleep mode for the computer (but not for the monitor) and for now it appears to be ok... will have to wait and see though...

Now I have another problem: every time I turn on the computer I get a BSOD report inside of windows when it finishes starting up. It starts booting up, fails, re-trys and succeeds. any fix???? I have get a .dmp file from the windows alert.

Thanks.

Hi :) 

Check MSCONFIG.....try disabling ALL to see if it fixes it....

Hey Brett took your advice but there are things I need at startup... Still I disabled a whole lot of stuff but was still having the problem and getting bsods. So I am rolling back the gpu drivers to a much earlier version, as I recently updated and down graded them slightly.

Thanks for the reply. I'll let you know if this helps
