Computer will not shut down after being woken up from sleep mode

This is a very odd problem that I have never encountered before. The computer shuts down perfectly fine if it hasn't been put to sleep at any point during use. The only thing I have tried is updating the BIOS and that didn't change anything. If anyone could shed some light on this issue I would greatly appreciate it.

Sleep Mode vs Shut Down
I just read an old thread from last year on here about this subject. I had XP before I just switched to Win 7. I did not ever turn off the XP. I like the convenience of sitting down and starting to work. Booting each time was too much like Dial-Up. My power supply on the XP machine lasted 5...
