Win 7 won't wake up from sleep if comp has + 2g mem

Is this a bug?

Running Windows 7 professional 64 with the latest updates. I tried this with 2 different types of mempry and got the same results. If i use only 2G of memory the system will wake up from sleep mode by hitting the keyboard. If there is more than 2G of memory the system will not wake up the fans will cycle on and off every few seconds but will not resume into windows. I tried this with G.SKILL PI and Kingston hyperX memory and received the same results

Yeah mine will wake up if you hit it soon after it goes to sleep, but if you let it sit for a while it won't wake up.

In my opinion sleep is for laptops anyway. My Sony never sleeps and it has been running for years with no problem.
