Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Mine does this all the time – the only way I’ve found of fixing it is to press the up/down arrow and then the spacebar…. Mine’s a Dell though so MAY be a little different!

    With sleep and hibernation issues I update to the latest BIOS. Seen this resolve too many flaky sleep problems.

    I'd have to agree with the BIOS update. Vista fixed the issues XP was having with sleep/hibernate so it shouldn't be OS.
