After that this problem started happening whenever it went to sleep mode.
The scan did not find any integrity violations.
We dont recommend registry cleaners specifically for this reason. Win 7 doesnt usually need it.
If you are at all concerned about spyware either now or in the future, Malwarebytes is the standard.
RE: you current problem. I am unsure of what changes were made to registry, so a repair install may be necessary but can you run this from cmd?
Powercfg -A and report back whcih sleep states are supported
