WMC Doesn't Work After Waking From Sleep Mode...?

I've seen similar issues, but not this. When I initially turn on the computer, Windows Media Center works just fine, tuner and all. But anytime after it's been in sleep mode, Media Center is almost unusable. Picture is sporratic, DVD's don't play properly, even iTunes Quicktime has playback issues. If I reboot it, everything is fine again....any suggestions?

Perhaps an energy report will give a clue.

Thanks all for the help....the hibernate mode definately helps, but watching TV is still a little choppy. I'll check for WMC updates.
