Why the hell does my computer never wake up!?

Every time my computer goes to sleep, I can't wake it up! I've tried mashing the keyboard, mouseclicks.... everything! It just doesn't respond. The only way to get to work again is to hold the power button til it shuts down, I know heaps of people that have the same problem. Seriously Microsoft! What the hell!?

Is your Bios in S3 mode?
In device manager, did you go to ketboard and mouse in power management tab and allow wake from sleep?
Do you have latest Bios?

The S3 option is in the bios.

P3.73 in your manual under Power menu.
