When I am in Windows 7, it seems that when the computer enters sleeep mode it goes into a coma which requires a forced power down.
The visible symptom is that instead of flashing the power button stays lit...
I have tried various keystrokes to try to wake the system, but no go...
I suspect this may be related to my installation of Open Suse linux in dual boot mode, but there seemed to be a lag between that install and this problem. The problem may be sporadic.
The reason I think it is related to Linux is that the same problem is happening on my desktop and on my netbook, and I installed Open Suse on both.
PS - I am woefully poor at searching forums, so please excuse me if this has been covered, I did try to search.
