Windows 7: Laptop Went to Sleep and Now Windows Won't Load Anymore

Well, I went to power up the laptop this morning and, rather than getting stuck on the Windows splash screen, it just powered on through it. And once I reached the desktop, there was a note there telling me that the Restore had been successful. Honestly, I don't know why it took the Restore this time when it didn't the few times I tried it before. But I'm glad it did.

So, even though we didn't really perform any repairs to the disk -- other than a Restore that the machine decided to finally accept after sitting for a couple of days -- I'd have to say this problem is "Solved."
Make sure you completely disable auto-hibernation and auto-sleep, so that it doesn't get stuck there again.

Okay I'll do the disk maintenance stuff as soon as I get back up there. I'm at a different machine at the moment.

Yeah, I know, I know. I've been bit before, but fortunately most of my critical files had been backed up. Now, however, that backup drive is almost full (it's "only" a terabyte). I need to get another one anyway now that it's full.

I suppose there's no excuse these days, is there? Not when I can buy a 32 gb thumb drive for like $8. Couple of those and you can back up a really good hunk of data.

Mr. Jim, that's the first thing I did once the machine was up again. It's been running normally now for the past 14 hours. Just the slide show sort of screen saver is the only thing running, and it's been doing so I guess for the past 13.5 hours.
