Can't come out of sleep mode sometimes

This has just started recently, very annoying when it happens, probably once every 3 days. How can I fix it? Nothing has really changed at all it just started happening out of the blue, any ideas?

I am running

Windows 7 x64
AMD Athlon II X3 425
4 GB DDR 2 800Mhz
1.5TB WD Green
30 GB OCZ SSD Vertex
Asus M3A78-EM

Welcome,
Next time it happens, go to search, type event viewer and take down the errors. Do that 3 more times and make note of the common errors.

Can you give more details, event viewer is a big program.

Try getting out of sleep by using the keyboard. The mouse may not work, if you have a optical that is off. Check to be sure that the keyboard setting is set up to wake from sleep.

I turn off the keyboard and mouse for sleep (Wake on KB/Mouse). I have to because I use my desk for paper work as well.

It does come out of sleep, to a blank screen, and then I have to restart the computer in order to have everything up and running again. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that earlier.

There is no fix exia, except to not use sleep mode.

Have you looked at my tutorial Rich posted?

It was working for 8 months, I have been using Windows 7 x64 all this time and nothing has changed. So what has happened really?

I really wish people wouldn't backtrack and edit their posts and add new info, very easy to miss and I don't see why you can't just make a new post.

Too bad this forum doesn't have a changed edits line like other forums.
