Windows 7: PC will not wake up from 'power save' mode

PC will not wake up from 'power save' mode

My PC will tend to not wake up when it has been idle for maybe 30mins plus. My screen is set to turn off after 10mins, when I try to wake it up nothing happens basically, but the HDD (SSD) light is normally blinking.

My power save options are all set to Windows 7 default apart from:
  • Changed 'Turn off display' to '10mins'
  • Changed 'Put the computer to sleep' to 'Never'
  • Changed 'Turn off hard disk' to 'Never'
Thanks for the help, SF diagnostic files are attached.

Also I would be a good choice to update the Display drivers. Check this article to know how to update the Drivers : How to Update Drivers on Windows 7 | Captain Debugger

My display drivers are definitely up to date (my AMD gfx card has a driver update checker) and I'm pretty sure my mobo battery is not dead as it's only a few months old!
