Windows 7: Computer Repeatedly Restarting Upon Waking Up

Computer Repeatedly Restarting Upon Waking Up

I've been trying to use sleep mode recently and every time I wake it up from sleep, it will repeatedly restart itself. The interval between restarts aren't very long, maybe like 2-4 seconds. Nothing comes up on my monitor either. Just a note, if I wake my computer shortly after it goes to sleep (30 seconds to a minute after it goes to sleep), It will wake up just fine.

Temp files delete,

Can you please show us what happens in event viewer? Is there anything logged in there when this happens?

I checked event viewer and nothing related to this is logged there. I'll go through some other things in the above post later tonight when I go to bed.

Another note, my computer runs fine besides this restart cycle on wake up, I usually have to hold the power button to stop the cycle and then start it again.
