Just hold the power button down for 4 or 5 seconds and it should shut down, if not just unplug. When it restarts run Windows normally, and reconsider using sleep -- you can control pretty much everything through power management control panel settings.

I have exactly the same problem as you and it's really annoying. And my computer sometimes wakes up randomly so it does this fail so sometimes it's doing this for hours because I'm not here. I have a Gigabyte motherboard.

Try this:
1. Unplug PC
2. Unplug video cable from video card
3. Remove video card from motherboard
4. Wait 30 seconds or until the light on the back of the power unit goes off
5. Plug everything back in.

Just press the reset button on your case. It should work just fine. After that it will load your PC as normal, the only difference in the boot up is that you are automatically signed into windows and everything that was on there before sleep mode will be there again. It's happened to me before. Do just that, open up a new tab on your browser and put it to sleep. Once it looks like your PC is "off" just hit the reset button and it will boot up . The web browser tab will be there once you're in your OS. So really no work is lost.. You might want to take a look at this NCIX video to determine what setting is right for you. Sleep, Hibernate, or Off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDDKw6Apxrg
