Windows 7: Windows 7 - Weird Problem...

Windows 7 - Weird Problem...

Ok, so whenever I turn off my computer, it doesn't actually turn off. Its like it goes into sleep mode without telling me. This happens every time I turn it off, whenever I turn it back "on", it proceeds as usual until an underscore _ is just blinking in the top left corner, it goes no further after that. So I have to turn it off and then turn it on again, where it proceeds as normal, but goes to a screen where it says "Resume Windows", or "Delete system restore data and go to boot screen". Deleting system restore data is the only thing I can do, and I have to do it EVERY TIME. Any help would be appreciated!

Edit: I'm not sure if I remember this correctly, but I believe it also goes into "sleep mode" if I don't touch my computer for a while. I just set my screensaver to start up when I'm not here for 2 hours, I plan to come back in an hour, and if it happens I'll let you know.
