Windows 7: Laptop doesn't stay asleep

Laptop doesn't stay asleep

Hi everyone. I have a Sony Vaio laptop, obviously with Windows 7, service pack 1. It's a little over a year old I believe. It's 64-bit with 4 gb of ram.

A few months ago I would say, the laptop stopped "staying" asleep. It's set to go to sleep when I shut the lid, and it does, however the slightest movement, even with the lid closed, causes it to turn back on. This happens if I move it into the case, or even carry it from one room to the next. I don't know if this is supposed to happen, but I just tried manually putting it to sleep, and before I could close the lid, it moved slightly and turned back on.

Currently my only solution is to manually set it to hibernate. Any solutions would be appreciated!

Also, I don't know if it's related, but it also seems to be heating up quite a bit and the fan can get loud at times.
