Help with sleep wake up

My computer can go to sleep mode. But upon wake up, it will stuck there with no video signal. I can see the fans are moving, cd and hd seems working. I have the latest bios installed and have tried different settings. Any thoughts?
This is my spec:
MSI Neo2 P35 with intel e2180
evga 8600gts
4gb ram.

You graphics card has 2 outputs on the back. Try changing the cable to the other output and see what happens.

It could be some device of yours does not allow the computer to wake up properly. I would go for Mouse, Keyboard and/or network adapter.

I have this problem too. An Acer Aspire m5201, two monitors and no video signal when it wakes.

I have upgraded bios, upgraded Nvidia driver and the chipset driver, fiddled with bios settings and I can't get it to work.

Any hep very gratefully received

I have noticed a pattern.
1) I click the mouse to wake up the system,
2) PC powers on but (I have dual monitors) both displays are black, 2nd monitor power light is amber.
3) If I press the PC power button after a couple of seconds the primary display will turn on or basically the log on screen appears. (On a side note, while the screen is black I have tried to hit keys on the keyboard and when the display returns it tells me the password entered is incorrect)

On a another note, when this doesn't happen, and the PC powers on quickly like it should, after I log on and get the desktop then Explorer freezes for anywhere from 2-5 minutes. After which there are no further delays.

My friend has suggested that it may be due to S1-S3 types of suspend and that Windows just doesn't like my hardware. I'll update this if I can figure it out, comments are welcome.
